China said in Beijing Monday evening that the death of Osama bin Laden was a milestone and a positive development for the international anti-terrorism efforts.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu made the remarks when asked to comment on the killing of the al-Qaida leader.

U.S. President Barack Obama announced late Sunday that bin Laden had been killed in a U.S. operation in Pakistan.

"China has taken note of the announcement," Jiang said, "We believe the death of Osama bin Laden is a milestone and a positive development for the international anti-terrorism efforts."

"Terrorism is the common enemy of the international community. China has also been a victim of terrorism, " said Jiang.

She said China has always opposed to terrorism of all forms and has been actively participating in the global anti-terrorism efforts.

"China upholds that the international community should step up cooperation in working together to fight terrorism," said Jiang.8 "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 to breed," she added.
