Beijing Cautions Against Undermining Pak-China Relations

Beijing Cautions Against Undermining Pak-China Relations

A suicide bombing occurred in north-west Pakistan, claiming six lives as terrorists drove a vehicle into a convoy of Chinese engineers working on a dam project. This marked the third attack on Chinese interests in the country.

Beijing strongly condemned the suicide attack that resulted in the deaths of five Chinese nationals, urging for a thorough investigation into the incident. The Chinese government emphasized that any efforts to undermine cooperation between Pakistan and China would be futile.

Beijing called upon Pakistani authorities to investigate the attack, apprehend the perpetrators, and ensure the safety of Chinese nationals and projects. China reiterated its steadfast support for Pakistan in the fight against terrorism.

Civil and military officials in the country condemned the attack and extended condolences to the victims’ families. The strategic partnership between China and Pakistan is robust, with the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) playing a vital role in Pakistan’s development.

The succession of attacks is perceived as an attempt to disrupt the multi-billion-dollar CPEC project, although the perpetrators are unlikely to succeed in their endeavors.

Ensuring the security of Chinese workers in Pakistan has been a longstanding concern, especially given previous attacks targeting Chinese interests in the country.
