An article published on October 12, 2010, by the Chinese Communist Party-controlled “Global Times” has questioned the reported description of Pakistan as a cancer by President Barack Obama. It has instead described Pakistan as a pearl and highlighted the Chinese affection for Pakistan.
There will be absolutely no stability in Xinjiang and Tibet without the solid brotherhood of Pakistan.
The article says: “Because Pakistan has strong defense science and technology, China feels very safe and peaceful in its frontier regions like Xinjiang and Tibet. There will be absolutely no stability in Xinjiang and Tibet without the solid brotherhood of Pakistan. Pakistan is at the crossroads of the legendary Silk Road between China and the West. I understand that Obama has his own agendas in Afghanistan. But I believe that any military policies and actions taking place in this region must serve the interests of the national security, national unity, social stability, economic development and regional cooperation among the three countries: Pakistan, China and Afghanistan.”
