China expresses concern over Pakistan situation

    BEIJING, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- China is highly concerned about the situation in Pakistan, and believes the country has the ability to solve its own issues, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao here Tuesday.

    "Pakistan is one of the important neighbouring countries of China. We believe the Pakistani government and people have the ability to solve their own problems and hope Pakistan could maintain stability and development," Liu told a regular press conference.

    Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf on Nov. 3 declared a state of emergency in the country and issued a provisional constitutional order (PCO), citing the ascendancy in the activities of extremists and incidents of terrorist attacks, and the abuse of the judiciary in the country.
