LONDON - After the United States, now China has also warned Pakistan that East Turkestan Islamic Movement (Etim), a separatist militant group from Xinjiang province, was plotting and planning attacks to coincide with the 60th anniversary celebrations of the communist revolution, from inside Pakistans tribal areas, it is revealed. Mushahid Hussain Syed, former chairman of the Senate foreign affairs committee while talking to TheNation on phone said in two separate meetings over recent months, senior Chinese officials had called on President Asif Ali Zardari to take action against the said group. Chinese officials revealed details of the meetings to Mushahid Hussain during his visit to Kazakhstan. Mushahid said, They told me that the Etim has its military headquarters in Fata and is planning to attack China on the 60th anniversary celebration of the communist revolution in October. He said Meng Jianzhu, Chinas Minister for Public Security, flew from Beijing to Shanghai to discuss the threat with Present Zardari during his visit to China in late February. President Zardari was not there to meet with the Chinese leadership, said Mr Hussain. The minister met with him for 90 minutes to discuss this issue. More recently, Beijing dispatched a special envoy to Islamabad in March to discuss the alleged threat posed by the Etim, Hussain added. The Etim and Chinese militants have long maintained a low-profile presence in Pakistans tribal areas. Both Washington and Beijing have listed Etim as a terrorist group and suspect it of having links with Al-Qaeda. The Pakistani army had killed Hasan Mahsoum, the groups leader and founder, in Pakistan in 2003. The spokesman of President Zardari Farhat Ullah Babar was not available for his comments.
