China Could Join The Fight Against ISIS After Friday’s Paris Attacks

China may soon join Russia in the fight against ISIS

Paris Attacks

President Xi Jinping  has vowed to fight ISIS after the “barbaric” murder of 129 people in the Paris attacks.

Friday’s terror attacks have been linked to ISIS or the so called Islamic State.

According to Chinese media, President Xi made the comments during a phone conversation with the French President, Francois Hollande.

The Sunday Express reports:

President Xi is also believed to have offered “deep condolences” to Mr Hollande during their conversation yesterday.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said: “Terrorism is a common challenge facing humanity.

“China resolutely supports France in maintaining its national security and stability and in attacking terrorism.”

And Li Keqiang, the Chinese Premier, expressed “strong outrage and condemnation” over the attacks.

No Chinese nationals are among the victims identified so far by French authorities.

But the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) said around 1,300 Chinese tourists were in Paris on Friday.

A spokesman for the CNTA urged its bureau to follow the developments in the French capital closely.

Xi’s comments have led to speculation that China is set to bomb the terrorists to oblivion in Iraq and Syria.
