    BEIJING: A senior Chinese official on Wednesday said that extremist groups in Xinjiang province have "thousand and one links" with Taliban forces in Pakistan. The statement comes at a time when Pakistan is trying hard to convince Beijing that it won't allow export of extremism across the border.

    "We have discovered some East Turkestan activists and terrorists from our neighboring country have countless links," said Nur Bekri, governor of Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region at a press conference on the sidelines of the Chinese parliament's annual meeting.

    Bekri, who regularly meets visiting Pakistani leaders - he met president Asif Ali Zardari during his last visit - also said there is a vast difference between what Islamabad has been saying and the situation on the ground in Xinjiang.

    Zardari had rushed to Xinjiang last year after officials in the border town of Kashgar had said they had found the people involved in rioting were connected with terrorists in Pakistan. He had also visited Chinese leaders in Beijing in a desperate attempt to save ties from serious damage.


    "Officials, especially in Pakistan, have said over and over again that they oppose violent activities directed against China," Bekri said, adding, "We have certainly discovered that East Turkestan activists and terrorists in our neighboring states have a thousand and one links."

    The comment is a departure from the regular Chinese foreign ministry refrain that says Pakistan has contributed much to battle terrorism and appreciates the efforts it has made. But Bekri seemed to suggest that Islamabad should do more to curb the export of terrorism to Xinjiang. India and Afghanistan, too, have blamed Islamabad for failure to act against the export of terrorism to other countries.

    'Self-immolaters are criminals guided by Dalai'

    The Chinese officials on Wednesday said that the Tibetans committing suicides were criminals and mentally ill, manipulated by the Dalai Lama. Police investigations have shown that a spate of self-immolation in recent months were orchestrated by forces based overseas, the officials added. "To encourage self-immolation , they even offer a compensation for the dead. This proves that self-immolations are pre-meditated political moves," said Wu Zegang, chief of Aba Tibetan-Qiang autonomous prefecture of Sichuan province, the scene of most suicides. "Some suicides are committed by clerics returning to normal life, and they all have criminal records. They have a bad reputation in society," Wu said.

    What's wrong with Indian media, this can't be happening. China is calling Pakistan a double faced(read the highlighted line) & exporting terror(in China).

    Can't believe it, swear on:china: & :pakistan: friendship.

    If the Chinese government wants to make an official statement, they will do it through the official Chinese media.

    There is no chance that they would skip all that, and issue their statements through "an affiliate of the New York Times" (Express Tribune) instead. :lol:

    Learn to read please, Developereo was merely quoting from the "About" section of the Express Tribune's own website. :azn:

    My point is that if Chinese officials want to make a statement, it will come through the official Chinese media.

    And if even that is impossible for some reason, then any "major reputable international source" will do.

    No local news from South Asia please, they just quote each other.
