China on Tuesday said Pakistan has made "important contributions" to the fight against terror worldwide following the U.S. announcement of Osama bin Laden's death.

"We noticed that the Pakistani Foreign Ministry has pledged not to allow its territory to be used for terrorist attacks against any country and it will continue to support the world's anti-terror efforts," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu told a regular media briefing.

Jiang said the south Asian country is at the anti-terror front-line, and its anti-terror resolve is unwavering and its action powerful.

China holds that all countries should institute their own anti-terror strategies and carry them out according to their domestic situation and in line with the United Nations Charter and other broadly-recognized international laws and codes.

"So, China will continuously and firmly support Pakistan to lay out and implement anti-terror strategies based on its own domestic situation," she said.

Labelling terrorism "the common enemy of the international community," Jiang said China, like the United States, has been the victim of terrorism.

"China and the United States, like other countries, share common interests in the fight against terrorism and thus have maintained sound cooperation," she said.

China has always opposed all forms of terrorism and has actively been participating in global anti-terrorism efforts, she said.

"China upholds that the international community should step up cooperation in working together to fight terrorism," said Jiang.

"China believes that it is necessary to seek both a temporary solution and a permanent cure in fighting terrorism and to make great efforts to eliminate the soil on which terrorism relies on to breed," she said.

She also said China would work with all south Asian states, including Pakistan and India, to jointly safeguard peace in the region.
