Trump Tweets against Pakistan while China stands with Islamabad

-

Monitoring Desk: “We said multiple times before, Pakistan has made great efforts and sacrifices for combating terrorism and made prominent contributions to the cause of international counterterrorism, and the international community should fully recognize this”.

This was said by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson of China Geng Shuang while responding a question during daily briefing in Chinese Foreign Office .

Geng Shuang was asked that US President Donald Trump said on Monday that the US has (had) been foolishly giving Pakistan more than US$33 billion in aid for counterterrorism over the past 15 years, and he vowed that this kind of treatment would end. Do you have a comment on this? China has heavily invested in Pakistan, so does China view US aid there as positive for stability and therefore Chinese interests?

Responding to above mentioned question, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson of China Geng Shuang said that Pakistan had made great efforts and sacrifices for combating terrorism and made prominent contributions to the cause of international counterterrorism, and the international community should fully recognize this.
