It was news to me that the PBS special on China last
week mentioned a separatist movement in western China
(close to Pakistan & Afghanistan). It seems to be
driven by a large Islamic population in the area.
I would not be surprised if members of that movement
were training or cooperating with the Taliban. There
was also some suggestion that the Taliban may have
been exporting its view of Islam & terrorist tactics
to the separatists in China.
So China has an incentive to cooperate with the anti-terrorist
