BEIJING, March 19 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday reiterated its stance on fighting against the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), a terrorist group that voiced support for the terrorist attack in Kunming on March 1.

ETIM released a video online and expressed support for the attack in Kunming City, capital of Yunnan Province in southwest China, which killed 29 and injured another 143.

"It has fully exposed the terrorist nature of the ETIM," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at a daily news briefing.

Terrorism is a common enemy of mankind. Fighting against the ETIM is a key component of the international anti-terrorism war, Hong said.

He called on the international community to fully recognize the terrorist nature and severe damage of the "East Turkistan" forces, as represented by the ETIM, and to support China's anti-terrorism stance.

The ETIM, listed by the United Nations Security Council as a terrorist group, claimed responsibility for the Tian'anmen attack in October in which five people were killed and 40 others injured.
