New York: Pakistan would continue to fight terrorism, despite the enormous sacrifice it has made, to safeguard regional security, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has assured China here.

Sharif conveyed this to Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi when they met here on Tuesday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session, Xinhua reported.

Lauding Pakistan`s efforts in cracking down on the terrorist group "East Turkistan Islamic Movement", Wang said that China would support Pakistan in boosting its ability to combat terrorism.

The Chinese foreign minister also offered condolences to families of those killed and injured in a powerful earthquake that jolted Pakistan`s southwest province of Balochistan as well as the bombings at a church in Pakistan`s northwest city of Peshawar.
