ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on Thursday said Pakistan was diligently pursuing the war against terrorism and urged the international community for lending more support in its efforts. 'Pakistan has hugely paid in terms of casualties and economy. We are fighting the war, which will benefit the whole world, Prime Minister told a Chinese media delegation at the PM House here. The 19-member delegation headed by Wang Dongmei, Vice President of China Radio International comprised journalists from Shanghai Dragon television, China Radio International and Tencent web portal. Gilani said the war on terror was not confined to one nation but was a global phenomenon, which needed to be dealt accordingly. 'Instead of mere criticism, the world needs to show more cooperation towards Pakistan, he said. He appreciated the statement by Chinese leadership acknowledging Pakistans contributions in war against terrorism and extremism besides pledging to support it in difficult times. Gilani also mentioned the role of Chinese media, which he said was positively and correctly portraying the situation in Pakistan contrary to the biased international media. 'The positive messages both from the Chinese leadership and the Chinese media are a sense of hope for the people in Pakistan, he said. Vice President CRI Ms Dongmei apprised the Prime Minister about the delegations visit to Pakistans main cities including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Gilgit. She said it was their common observation that the situation in Pakistan as depicted by the international media reports, was not true. She said the visiting delegation had prepared some 200 news and television reports which would dissipate positive message about the real situation in Pakistan. The Prime Minister stressed for enhancing Sino-Pak relations through people-to-people contacts and the cultural and Parliamentary exchanges. He said China was like no other country in the world, which was loved by the Pakistani nation deep from the heart. He mentioned the exchange of 100-member youth delegation between Pakistan and China on annual basis, which he said was playing a great role in inculcating the values of friendship to the new generation. He termed economic cooperation with China as the top most priority besides collaboration in fields of defence, culture, energy and construction of dams. Gilani held an hour-long interactive session with the delegates and answered to their several questions. In response to a query on the Atta Abads quick lake affecting the transportation on Silk Route between Pakistan and China, he said the matter was discussed with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao who agreed to help out Pakistan on it. The Prime Minister said he also talked with Premier Wen about helping Pakistan in constructing a road linking Karachi motorway with Faisalabad. He said like the Silk Route, this viable project could also become a symbol of Pak-China friendship. He called for more cooperation between the sister-cities of Karachi and Shanghai. When asked on the details of Pak-China cooperation in defence, Gilani said:'We speak less and do more.
