Why does the PRC supply arms to terrorist groups involved in Civil Wars, and then lie...?
.. about "not interfering with the internal affairs of other countries?
China is establishing itself as a significant arms supplier to a growing number of important recipient states: PAKISTAN, MYANMAR, BANGLADESH [ & Algeria]
Pakistan - which accounted for 55 percent of Chinese arms exports - is likely to remain the largest recipient of Chinese arms in the coming years due to large outstanding and planned orders for combat aircraft, submarines and frigates.
China's rise has come with a new sense of military assertiveness...
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei, asked about the report, said China was a responsible arms exporter which strictly adhered to international law.
"On arms exports, China sticks to three principles. First, that it is conducive to the recipient country's justifiable self-defense needs. Second, it does not damage regional and global peace, security and stability. Third, it does not interfere in other countries' internal affairs," he told reporters.

China does not release figures for its arms sales.
China faces bans on Western military imports, dating back to anger over its crushing of pro-democracy protests in and around Tiananmen Square in 1989.
That makes its domestic arms industry crucial in assembling a modern military that can enforce claims over Taiwan and disputed maritime territories.
China has faced off recently with its Southeast Asian neighbors and Japan over rival claims to strings of islets in the South China Sea and East China Sea, even as the United States executes a so-called pivot towards the Pacific.
And here's an oldie but goodie relative to the subject of China'saggressive military policy that is the foundation of CCP imperialism:
I DARE CHINA TO SEND THAT SOB TO TAIWAN AND LET HIM GIVE THAT SPEECH!
@Imperial Iranian Air Force - "NUTS!"

The same reason India has been arming the secessionists in neighboring countries. In Bangladesh India was arming "Shanti Bahini" for many years now just to keep the Bangladeshi rulers to toe its line. India did the same thing with Tamil Tigers during insurgency in that island starting from 1984 that ended in the last two years ago. See how rapidly Sri Lanka is now growing. We assume that India is also arming Baluchis of Baluchistan in Pakistan to destabilize that country. India did similar thing in Nepal and made Bhutan a vassal state and devoured Sikkim.
These are the things powerful nations would do if they don't care what the world would be thinking of them. I know Pakistan did the same thing in Afghanistan and now paying the price. So, why blame PRC alone being an Indian, that I am assuming from your other questions.
Hope this helps.
