China and Russian Federation have assured Pakistan at the diplomatic level that they would veto any U.S. move in the United Nations to slap economic sanctions on Islamabad over failure to eliminate terror safe havens, according to a media report on Wednesday. Pakistan's efforts at home have been focused only on terrorists who target the Pakistani state. The prime minister said much more was happening from other side of the border and vehemently rejected the perception that attacks took place from Pakistan's territory, terming such allegations "completely incorrect". He said his government's mandate was to complete the initiatives taken by Nawaz Sharif.
About the BRICS declaration, the prime minister said the communique was not specific to Pakistan.
Drawing on the Chinese perspective, Dr. Sriparna Pathak argues that as China shares an "all weather friendship" with Pakistan, public shaming of Pakistan for shielding terrorists is clearly not something that is acceptable to China.
He said the current economic issues were definitely a challenge but "we are addressing it".
"Erdogan reiterated Turkey's unflinching commitment to broaden and expand brotherly relations between the two countries", the statement said.
