KARACHI Sep 12: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal said on Monday that China had not changed its policy towards Pakistan but had endorsed its viewpoint at a summit of five major emerging market nations where concern was expressed about militant groups allegedly based in the country.

He alsol called on Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali and Governor Muhammad Zubair and discussed legal, political and governance issues with them.

“We are also against militants and want to first put our house in order,” he said while talking to reporters after visiting the Quaid-i-Azam’s mausoleum.

He said the declaration of the recent summit of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa was similar to that of the last Heart of Asia Conference about Afghanistan and it should not be taken out of context.
