Press conference on 2nd session of 12th NPC held in Beijing

China calls for more understanding and support from the international community to its fight against terrorism, a spokeswoman of China’s top legislature said Tuesday.

Fu Ying, spokeswoman for the second session of the 12th National People’s Congress, made the remarks at a press conference prior to the opening of the session slated for Wednesday.

Terrorism has no borders, and China hopes for more international understanding and cooperation as it steps up anti-terrorism efforts, said Fu.

Fu condemned the terrorist attack in the southwestern city of Kunming in Yunnan Province on Saturday that killed 29 people and injured 143, saying the mobs were “inhuman” killers.

The Ministry of Public Security said in a statement on Monday that the terrorist gang led by Abdurehim Kurban was responsible for the Kunming attack.

Police shot and killed four of them and captured an injured female attacker at the scene, and later captured another three suspects.

Moreover, China’s top legislature will offer legal support as the country deepens reform in a comprehensive manner.Deepening reform is the most important theme of the Chinese society, and NPC will continue to review the environmental protection law draft amendment and plan for laws on water and soil pollution prevention and control. China’s top legislature had second and third readings of the environmental protection law draft amendment last year but was yet to vote, said Fu Ying.
