Days after a terrorist attack at the historic Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing, China for the first time expressed strong support for "counter-terrorism" cooperation with India and Russia at a meeting here Sunday.

Sources told The Indian Express that Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi "red-flagged" the issue on his own as he held talks with External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid

and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the 12th Russia-India-China (RIC) trilateral meeting.

Wang reportedly said that the attack at Tiananmen Square involved jehadist elements. The RIC joint statement, released after the meeting, made a mention of the incident and condemned it "in the strongest terms", at China's insistence.

As an outcome, the statement also made a reference to terrorism in a language much sharper than used by an RIC meet before. "Terrorism is a threat to international peace and security and a grave violation of human rights and a crime against humanity," it said. The ministers agreed that "there cannot be ideological, religious, political, racial, ethnic, or any other justification for acts of terrorism". They underlined the need "to bring to justice perpetrators, organisers, financiers and sponsors of terrorist acts".
