China: US report on terrorism not accurate

BEIJING: China is dissatisfied with the false accounts relating to it in a US State Department report on terrorism, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.

In the “Country Reports on Terror­ism 2015”, the United States blamed China for mostly focusing on the East Turkistan Islamic Movement in its international counter-terrorism.

The report alleged that China had implemented stricter controls on religious practice in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, and that there was a lack of transparency and information provided by China about violent incidents in the nation that the government characterised as terrorism.

“China is dissatisfied with the false accounts relating to it, and regrets the unobjective remarks concerning China-US counter-terrorism cooperation,” Hua said at a regular news briefing on Friday.

“China does not accept the United States making irresponsible comments about the counter-terrorism policies of other countries, including China.”

Calling terrorism the “arch-enemy of human civilisation”, Hua said joint counter-terrorism efforts were a pressing task and the responsibility of the international community, and double standards would do little to help international cooperation.

“China has always attached importance to and participated in international counter-terrorism cooperation, and will continue to have exchanges with other countries,” Hua said. — China Daily/Asia News Network
