BEIJING: The Chinese print and electronic media has shown complete solidarity with Pakistan following the November 26 Nato-Isaf attack on Pakistan. Chinese media following the incident wrote and broadcast detailed analysis, editorials and programs in support of Pakistan and urged the international community to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country. The most significant article appeared in China’s most influential newspaper the People’s Daily titled “The Anti-terror War Should Also Follow the Rules”. The news analysis said that since 2004, US drones have killed more than a thousand people in Pakistan’s tribal areas, resulting in heavy civilian casualties and a sharp rise in anti-American sentiment among the people.
