Foreign Minstry spokesman Qin Gang on Thursday criticized the United States for sending three Chinese terrorists to Slovakia.

Chinese Foreign Ministry on Thursday criticized the United States for sending three Chinese terrorists to Slovakia and called on the relevant country not to give terrorists habitat but to hand them over to China.

The three detainees of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp are members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), which is listed as a terrorist group and sanctioned by the United Nations, spokesman Qin Gang said at a routine press briefing.

“The terrorists posed a threat to the security of China and the recipient country,” Qin said.

In response to U.S. State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf's call for China to maintain restraint following the latest violence in Xinjiang, Qin urged the abandon double standards and avoid sending the wrong signal to violent terrorist forces.

It was a terrorist attack, with solid evidence, Qin said. He added that terrorism is against humanity and society and that the international community has a common understanding on combating terrorism and opposes countries to hold double standards on the issue.

"The U.S. State Department comments ignore the facts, sound feeble and can't be justified. People of the U.S. are also victims of terrorism. Do not do to others what you don't want done to yourself," Qin said.

Nine terrorists attacked a police station wielding knives on early Monday morning in Shache County of Kashgar. Xinjiang police shot dead eight terrorists and captured another.
