China sees risk of northwest attacks

BEIJING: China’s tense far, north-western region of Xinjiang faces threats from violence rippling across south and Central Asia and enforcing stability there will be tough this year, a senior official said on Friday. The regional governor, Nuer Baikeli, told reporters that violence in Afghanistan and recent attacks in India and Pakistan showed Xinjiang had reason to fear what China calls the “three forces” — terrorism, separatism and religious extremism.

“We are very concerned about this problem,” he said. “With instability and uncertainty increasing in neighbouring areas, will it affect us? But we can prevent this and have confidence we can properly control the border and keep terrorist attacks beyond our borders.” Nuer Baikeli was speaking at a briefing on the sidelines of the annual meeting of China’s parliament. reuters

In the past China claimed extremist from Pakistan were causing the problem, who are they blaming now? they'll take care of them Tibet style anyway.
