Extracts from Foreign Ministry Spokesperson’s Regular Press Conference
Prasar Bharati:China and Pakistan are conducting a month-long joint air force exercise which, as per the experts, is seen as China and Pakistan’s larger strategic posture towards India and a matter of concern for India. What is China’s position on this growing concern in India particularly when China has expressed apprehensions about India’s Malabar exercise?
Wang Wenbin: As all-weather strategic cooperative partners, China and Pakistan have friendly exchange and cooperation in political, economic, military, security and a broad range of areas. We are committed to jointly upholding peace and stability in the region. The cooperation project you mentioned is a regular arrangement between Chinese and Pakistani militaries that doesn’t target any third party. We hope it will be viewed in an objective manner.
