Major media organizations like China Daily has not given attention to visit of the president while Peoples Daily has printed news from official news agency Xinhua.
Zardari came to Urumqi to attend the first China-Eurasia Expo, which will be held from Sept. 1 to 5. Zardari stated that Pakistan opposes any terrorist activities and will work more closely with China in combating terrorism.
Xinjiang’s city of Kashgar, which is located near Pakistan’s northeastern border, suffered two terrorist attacks in July.
Local officials previously said that an initial probe linked the two attacks to a group of religious extremists headed by militants who were trained in camps run by the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM).
Meanwhile, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari said that his country will cooperate more closely with China in fighting terrorism during a visit to west China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, an area that has recently weathered deadly terrorist attacks.
Zardari made the statement here Tuesday during a meeting with Zhang Chunxian, Xinjiang’s top official.
The militants then entered Xinjiang to plot terrorist attacks. The ETIM is a cross-border terrorist organization recognized by both Beijing and the U.N.
