2004/05/10

    BEIJING, May 10 (Xinhuanet) -- China strongly condemns the terrorist bombing in the Chechen capital of Grozny, said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Jianchao here Monday.

    Liu made the remark in a statement on the Sunday blast at a stadium of Grozny, which killed Chechen President Akhmad Kadyrov along with several other leaders, and caused numerous civilian casualties.

    The Chinese government opposes any form of terrorism and firmlysupports the Russian government's action to fight terrorism and maintain the country's stability. It is also willing to make unremitting efforts, together with the international community including Russia, to combat terrorism, separatism and extremism, said the statement.

    Chinese President Hu Jintao sent a letter of condolence to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin earlier in the day, expressing his condolences over the deaths and sincere sympathy for their relatives and the injured.
