United States hopes Pakistan would 'come to table' to fight against terrorism

American Aid Cuts: Pakistan won't change its policy 'Betrayed' Pakistan army chief won't ask for further US aid

China on Monday said it is opposed to the USA "finger pointing" at Pakistan and linking it with terrorism, insisting that the responsibility of cracking down on terror outfits can not be placed on a particular country.

"Our expectations are straightforward: Taliban and Haqqani leadership and attack planners should no longer be able to find safe haven or conduct operations from Pakistani soil", said Army Col.

"I am not aware of what you mentioned", Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told the media when asked to comment on the report.

"[It] needs to be appreciated that Pakistan has fought the war against terrorism largely from its own resources, which has cost over $120 billion in 15 years", Pakistan said in a statement on Friday, which noted that counter terrorism efforts between the two countries has "decimated al-Qaeda" and other groups, directly serving the national security interests of the US and the global community.

Historically, Pakistan has faced the same type of criticism before regarding its counterterrorism efforts and providing of "safe havens" to terrorists from the past two White House administrations, with the Pakistani government staunchly refusing to ramp up their operational tempo when accused of aiding the Taliban's efforts.

He further said that it is not conducive to the global counter-terrorism efforts [to blame others].

The US has been clear on this issue to Pakistan, Goldstein said.

The spokesperson said that China also welcomed all the global joint efforts in terms of counter-terrorism on the basis of mutual trust and mutual respect.

U.S. officials have said in a series of recent statements that nearly all security assistance to Pakistan has been suspended following President Donald Trump's Tweet on January 1, in which he had alleged that Pakistan "gives safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help".

Chinese media has been speculating that Trump's efforts to step up pressure on Pakistan may move it closer to Islamabad as Beijing is involved in a number of projects in the country under the Dollars 50 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

China on Tuesday denied as "unnecessary" speculation reports that it was planning to build a military base at Jiwani in Pakistan's Balochistan province close to the strategic Chabahar port, which is being jointly developed by India, Iran and Afghanistan.

Pakistan already has deep historical ties going back to many years and they have close military ties, the official said, adding that the economic relationship is also growing with the China Pakistan Economic Corridor. "First and the foremost I would like to say that terrorism is common enemy of the world", he said. Actually, China is defending the countries that have been making anti-terrorism efforts in a just and fair way, he added. "Cracking down of terrorism calls for the joint efforts from the worldwide community", he said.
