Modi barb: China defends Pakistan


Beijing: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed Pakistan as a “mothership of terrorism”, China staunchly defended its all-weather ally saying it is against linking any country or religion with terror and asked the world to acknowledge Pakistan’s “great sacrifices”. While defending Pakistan, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying also said the world community should “seriously tackle” countries and organisations involved in promoting terrorism.
