China asked relevant countries to keep its concerns about certain individuals in mind when responding to a media report that the Indian government has cancelled a visa to an exiled Uygur terrorist.

"We've noticed related reports. China has already expressed its concern when it noticed that the Indian government was granting a tourist visa to Dolkun Isa," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular news conference on Tuesday.

Dolkun Isa, executive chairman of the Munich-based World Uygur Congress, is branded by China as a terrorist. It is reported that the Indian government has withdrawn his tourist visa on Saturday.

"Isa is wanted by Interpol and we call for other countries to keep our concerns in mind," Hua said.
