During a joint statement by India, Russia and China, China cold shouldered Pakistan with respect to its support to terror groups.
Despite having friendly relations with Pakistan in trade, China has called for Pakistan to stop its support of terror groups and use of them in geopolitical goals.
The statement came at the conclusion of the Russia, India and China Foreign Ministers' meeting here in the east Chinese city.
China has been against India in global fora when it came to taking action against Pakistan sponsored terror. It has been the only country against India's demand for Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar to be named as designated terrorist in UNSC.
The Ministers strongly condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. They called on the international community to strengthen UN-led global counter-terrorism cooperation by fully implementing the relevant UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and the Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law , while respecting sovereignty and independence of all states, and expeditiously finalizing and adopting the UN Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism at the earliest. They reiterated that states and their competent agencies play a central role in both national and international counter-terrorism efforts. They also stressed that terrorist groups cannot be supported and used in political and geopolitical goals.
