Pakistan’s Federal Minister of Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan said Friday the country will continue close intelligence sharing and collaboration with China to counter terrorism activities in their connected regions.

Awan met with the media in the Pakistani embassy in Beijing after returning from Urumqi, where she joined Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and four other ministers at the new China-Eurasia Expo.

"(The terrorism organizations) keep on changing their strategies and actions," Awan said. "So we must work in close collaboration and also change our actions, and that can only be done through close coordination and mutual understanding."

China had tightened security ahead of the expo and – according to a top official of Urumqi, Zhu Hailun – police had thwarted several attempts by separatists and religious extremists to sabotage the fair.

Still, Awan said she enjoyed the reception at Urumqi and was glad for the cordial feelings locals had towards Pakistan. At the expo, she held meaningful exchanges with China and other attending leaders. As Pakistan’s top press official, Awan held exchanges on the ways "media can be one of the marketing tools to promote bilateral economic ties and create investment opportunities."

In addition, the minister said Pakistan is working out an agreement with China to exchange TV programs between CCTV and Pakistani networks, which will include dramas, art movies and youth programs.

 

Although Awan has been in China three times before, this time is her first as Pakistan’s head press official. She said it is a difficult job to take care of her words as they represent governmental policies.

Speaking on its behalf, Awan repeated her president’s main goals in attending the Xinjiang expo, in which Pakistan hopes to strengthen exchanges with China in energy, agriculture, road connectivity and infrastructure.

"Such initiatives still need to be explored about how we can offer our own land as one of the energy corridors for the Eurasia countries including Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Pakistan," Awan said.

She said potential initiatives include the new cross-border railway and the rebuilding of the Karakoram Highway, or the revival of the Silk Road. Awan said that with China’s focus of new opening-up policies in its western provinces, Xinjiang can become a future economic hub for Central Asia. Pakistan, therefore, should "really seize the opportunity as one of its closest neighbors and partners to strengthen economic ties with the province."

At the meeting with Beijing media, Awan also addressed concerns of Pakistan’s recent diplomatic woes with the United States.

"Some communication gap was created due to Bin Ladin’s issue," she said. "But with time those relations are moving forward and keeping in mind our national interests, and there is no deadlock between us."

Awan said the war on terror is not only in the interest of the U.S. and other parts of the world; it is also in the interest of Pakistan. She said Pakistan wants to protect its people as well as the world, but "not at the cost of our own security."

"The international community including the U.S. must respect the sacrifices that Pakistan has made," Awan said. "We want recognition for those sacrifices."

The minister added that the media has the power to help promote the real image of Pakistan and Islam.

"Islam has nothing to do with bloodshed. It is against extremism and terrorism," Awan said. "And the media can help dispel the image and perception that Pakistan is a terrorist country."
