Chinese State Television CCTV9 has, in a documentary aired recently, highlighted the role of the Lashkar-e-Taiyaba (LeT) and its sponsors in Pakistan in this horrific attack which shook the world.

In a major development, China has for the first time, publicly acknowledged the role of Pakistan in the coordinated terror attacks that took place in Mumbai between November 26 and 29, 2008 that claimed the lives of 164 people and left another 308 injured.

Chinese State Television CCTV9 has, in a documentary aired recently, highlighted the role of the Lashkar-e-Taiyaba (LeT) and its sponsors in Pakistan in this horrific attack which shook the world.

This change in policy by China is significant in the sense that it is taking place on the eve of the expiry of Beijing's decision to place on technical hold the listing of three known LeT/JuD(Jamaat-ud-Dawa) militants - Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki, Talha Saeed and Hafiz Abdul Rauf, on June 9, 2016.


The listing of these individuals by the Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the United Nations Security Council in September 2015, had the overwhelming support of all members of the international community, with the exception of China, which acted on Pakistan's behest.

Stand on Hafiz Saeed

China is already facing considerable global flak over a similar technical hold over the listing of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar, even though the JeM stands listed by the United Nations Sanctions Committee.

China has obviously realised that extending blind support to Pakistan on terror-related issues taints its own reputation as a responsible world power that is seeking to build an international consensus on the need for all countries to jointly fight the menace of terror.

Do you think this is because of India-Vietnam defence deals?

26/11 has happen in 2008, now China wake up to this, something has made them change their mind.
Maybe because of India thinking of supplying brahmos to Vietnam or because of growing relations with USA. We can just speculate.

There might be as a result of tightening of screws on their Muslim population rather than any change in stance on india. Unless we get to see the English transcript of the programme, let's not jump ahead.

I just saw someone give credit to Subramanian swamy for this as he happened to be in China last couple of days. No way Subramaniam swamy has anything to do with this.

yes certainly. It is modi's diplomacy. The way Modi has Fu**ed them in last 2 years is nothing but awesome and difficult to believe 2 years ago. the way modi dismantled the chinese string of pearl is a classical case study of diplomacy. Modi has excellently used limited resources (Compared to china) to leverage and push its act east policy. The alliance with Japan and US is really a game changer. China has not been humiliated by any power including US so badly. From Chamur to south china sea, china has to back track on each and every occasion. Abhi unki literally fatne lagi hai. Our soldiers on Indo china border are bulish. We have started patrolling bay of Bengal with ultra modern US surveillance plane. Roads on Arunachal pradesh are being constructed. China specific material such as ultra light howitzers are on high priority purchase. S 400 is coming. T 72 regiments are moved to north east. Exercise is done in south china sea. Vietnam is supplied with Brahmos. China is attacked with an irresistible diplomatic offense which I think has left china with no option but to reconciliation. Soon China will come with offers to maintain status quo on LAC and border. They are fuc**d up very badly.

Well if you look at Sri Lanka, they have Chinese port, Bangladesh has the same, Pakistan is already Chinese province, Nepal is about to become one. All of these will be in debt burden of Chinese soon.

Lets wait and see what happens now.

China still opposes India on Saeed issue. China still blocking India at NSG. China still constructing CPEC. China will have Gwadar. China has ports in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh. Chinese influence is growing in Nepal day by day. China is getting closer to Russia than India. China still ignoring us on south-china sea issue.


What I'm trying to say is, lets not get ahead of ourselves. They are not pakistan which can be easily tamed. Lets not put Modi in God's seat just yet.

A Chinese friend who has actually watched the documentary posted the following on the social media:

Part1:

http://tv.cntv.cn/video/C29105/f735b4eb29a149f5867e1fa4f1d2717b

Part2:

http://tv.cntv.cn/video/C29105/d52c5c1eceb3451721cb338a6bbe51ad

The 2 part documentry was first aired on 14 July and 15, 2011.

Most part of the documentary depict the event with sympathy to the Indian victims. It is only till 41:10 at Pt2 in answering who is responsible for the attack, the narrative goes like " The Mumbai terrorist attack was master-minded and carried out by Lashkar-e-Taiyaba (LeT) with the aims to put a wedge between Pakistan and India by stirring up tension, thereby averting Pakistan's attention of its eradicating terrorism action from the LeT, thus gaining time for Taliban and Al qaeda".

It has no one word directly linking or implying the Pakistan
Gvt sponsoring or behind the LeT in the 90-minute documentary at all.

It is interesting to NOTE that both china and USA is kicking pakistan these days about terrorism coming from the state supporting India.

More than what china sees as its glamor in the international arena...IMO china sees India cozying up with USA is because of the new strategic backing India has received from USA against pakistan terrorism program.

Errr..is the INDIAN diplomacy from the GOI taking a better shape on regional balance by putting pakistan in a straight jacket..
Or
it could be chinese concern that with USA supporting India on pak based terror group and china backing pakistan on pakistan based terror group...we are opening more diplomatic dialogues with US . Our moving with the USA is a big concern for china..china can afford pakistan but cant afford US and India cozying up on "strategic issues" in the region -the core of which is china funded terror groups against India in pakistan.

Anyhow..the Indian diplomatic strategy to counter pakistan seems to be working for time being.

India cozying up with USA and USA becoming more vocal about terror groups in pakistan+ US cutting down the funding for pak..which china will have to bear the brunt in the near future for pakistan terror program. US investment in pakistan was intel and terror groups..chinese investment in pakistan is REAL WORLD infrastructure...mucho more costly for chinese security and growth.

Usually china used to be a freeloader in international area with US funding and chinese loading up on the position created by US...

Then Vietnam could be a factor too...a big factor..

Modi Govts Coercive diplomacy seems to be yielding results on permanent grounds..

Ok, before you guys go too far, let me clear the whole thing for you:
Firstly, it is nothing new that Chinese media acknowledge the terrorists coming from Pakistan. The Chinese newspaper made it very clear from 2008;
Secondly, the only thing different is: Chinese doesn't think that terrorists were sent by Pakistan gov;
Finally, Chinese doesn't care if India sell weapons to Vietnam, whatever India can offer, Vietnam has bought from Russia for quite long time, including your missile.

US earlier had same line, it was not long before they changed their mind. If China want to support terrorists govt of Pakistan, it wont be long before these terrorists will bite you.
