Beijing [China], Feb. 25 (ANI): China has seconded the recently launch military operation Raddul Fasaad by Pakistan as a counter-terrorism measure, after a series of bloody terrorist assaults across the country. "China understands and supports Pakistan in taking necessary measures to cement its counter-terrorism achievements, maintain domestic security and stability, and protect people's life and property. We believe that with the joint efforts of the Pakistani government, military and people, Pakistan will surely claim the final victory in its counter-terrorism endeavour," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang at a regular press conference on Friday. Pakistan Army on Wednesday launched its anti-terrorist offensive following a surge in recent terror attacks in the country, the latest being the the Lal Shahbaz Qalandar's shrine suicide attack that claimed the lives of more than 100 people. According to the Army, the operation aims at indiscriminately eliminating residual and latent threat of terrorism, consolidating gains of operations made thus far and further ensuring security of the borders.
