China "dissatisfied" with U.S. report on terrorism

China is dissatisfied with the false accounts relating to China in a U.S. State Department report on terrorism, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said Friday.
In the "Country Reports on Terrorism 2015," the U.S. blamed China for primarily focusing on the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM) in its international counterterrorism.
The report alleged that China has implemented stricter controls and curbs on religious practice in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, and that there is a lack of transparency and information provided by China about violent incidents in China that the government characterized as terrorism.
"China is dissatisfied with the false accounts relating to China, and regrets the unobjective remarks concerning China-U.S. counterterrorism cooperation," Hua said at a regular news briefing.
"China does not accept the U.S. making irresponsible comments about the counterterrorism policies of other countries including China," Hua said.
Calling terrorism the "arch-enemy of human civilization," Hua said joint counterterrorism efforts are a pressing task and the responsibility of the international community, and double standards will do little to help international cooperation.
China has always attached importance to and participated in international counterterrorism cooperation, and will continue to have exchanges with other countries including the United States, Hua said.
She called on relevant countries to respect China's efforts to combat East Turkistan forces, including the ETIM, which is listed by the United Nations as a terrorist group.
