China defends Pakistan after PM Modi's 'terror export factory' comment”

In a lucid speech, heard with rapt attention, Dr Jitendra Singh recalled that the new experiment of programme-based competition for PM Awards was started just three years back and in 2016, when the first award function based on this new criteria was held, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a very thought - provoking observation as to why only 10 per cent districts had participated.

Putting an end to all speculation, an official source has said that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and the Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will not be holding talks with their Pakistani counterparts in Beijing on the sidelines Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), an official source told news agency PTI. "The global community should work together to fight against it". The ministers from Pakistan will be attending the event in China while a number of issues will be likely discussed ranging from regional security and terrorism.

On the other hand, Chinese leaders are expected to persuade Swaraj not to make strong statement about Pakistan's terrorism links.

"We hope that the global community will lend active support to Pakistan's counterterrorism efforts and continue to work with Pakistan to conduct effective cooperation in fighting terrorism", China's foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said during her regular media briefing on Friday. "We hope the worldwide community could support the efforts made by Pakistan in counter-terrorism and forge effective cooperation with it in that regard". China is also anxious about sharp exchange of words between India and Pakistan.
