BEIJING: Pakistan is eyeing closer anti-terrorism cooperation with China, Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf said in an exclusive interview with China’s English-language daily Global Times. Ashraf said Pakistan has hoped that the international community will give the country greater recognition and support for its contribution to the war on terrorism. Ashraf said terrorism is a “menace” to regional and global peace and security, stressing that it is the collective responsibility of all nations to fight against it. “Pakistan is on the frontline of the war on terrorism, facing the main brunt and being the main sufferer. We paid a heavy price in the war and the international community should recognize our sacrifices and support us,” he said.
