KASHGAR (Agencies) - China on Monday blamed Muslim separatist 'terrorists trained inside Pakistan for an outbreak of deadly violence and imposed heavy security in a bid to prevent further unrest. Nineteen people were killed in two separate incidents in the ancient Silk Road city of Kashgar over the weekend in the latest wave of violence to hit the restive Xinjiang region, home to a mainly Muslim Uighur minority. Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang resent the presence of Han Chinese and religious and political controls imposed by Beijing. The attack coincided with ISI chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pashas visit to China. And Pakistan said it will continue extending its cooperation to China against the separatists. The Kashgar local government said in a statement on its website the assailants behind an attack on a restaurant that left six dead on Sunday had learned explosive-making skills in terrorist-run camps in Pakistan. The heads of the group had learned skills of making explosives and firearms in overseas camps of the terrorist group East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) in Pakistan before entering Xinjiang, the online statement said. The attackers adhered to 'extremist religious ideology and advocated 'jihad, the statement also said. Chinese authorities have accused the ETIM, which wants an independent homeland for Xinjiangs Uighurs, of orchestrating attacks in the region on many occasions. The United States and the United Nations have listed the group as a 'terrorist organisation, and China has previously said it has operations in Pakistan as well as Afghanistan. Islamabad on Monday said it would extend 'full cooperation to Beijing in countering the ETIM rebels. Pakistan will continue to extend its full cooperation and support to the government of the Peoples Republic of China against the ETIM, Foreign Office spokesperson Tehmina Janjua said in a brief statement. Responding to a question, Tehmina said all incidents of terrorism are deplorable. Pakistan is fully confident that the patriotic people of Xinjiang autonomous region of... China and, in particular, Kashgar, as well as the Chinese government, will succeed in frustrating evil designs of the terrorists, extremists and separatists, who constitute an evil force, she said. However, Xinjiang expert Michael Dillon told AFP there was little evidence the group had any links to Pakistan. What were seeing now is a repeat of Chinas complete unwillingness to see that unrest inside its borders might stem from poor conditions, said Dillon, an academic and author of the book Xinjiang, Chinas Muslim Far Northwest.
