China is concerned about the situation of emergency in Pakistan and hopes the country could maintain stability and development, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said on Sunday.
"We are concerned about the situation in Pakistan, and believe the Pakistani government and people are capable of solving their problems, " Liu said.
Musharraf on Saturday declared a state of emergency in the country and issued a provisional constitutional order (PCO), citing the ascendancy in the activities of extremists and incidents of terrorist attacks, and the abuse of the judiciary in the country.
Under the PCO, the Constitution of Pakistan has been put in abeyance. But the National Assembly, Senate and the provincial assemblies of Punjab, Sindh and Balochistan will remain functional.
