On the afternoon of April 26, the shuttle bus of the Confucius Institute at the University of Karachi in Pakistan suffered a suicide terrorist attack on campus.

So far, 3 Chinese teachers have been killed, 1 Chinese teacher has been injured, and many other Palestinians have been injured or killed.

China expresses its strong condemnation and great indignation over this major terrorist attack, its deep condolences to the unfortunate victims, and its condolences to the injured and their families.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Chinese embassies and consulates in Pakistan have activated the emergency mechanism immediately.

Assistant Minister Wu Jianghao urgently called the Pakistani ambassador to China to express his serious concerns, and asked the Pakistani side to immediately investigate the matter thoroughly, arrest the perpetrators and punish them in accordance with the law. Happen once again.

The Chinese Embassy in Pakistan and the Consulate General in Karachi are working with the Pakistani side to make every effort to deal with the aftermath.

  Pakistani Prime Minister Shabazz went to the Chinese embassy in Pakistan to offer condolences on the evening of the 26th, saying that the Pakistani government will conduct an in-depth investigation into the incident, punish the perpetrators severely, and comprehensively strengthen the security of Chinese personnel, projects and institutions in Pakistan. Allow any force to destroy Pakistan-China friendship.

Relevant departments of the local governments in Sindh and Karachi have launched a comprehensive investigation and arrest of the murderers.

  The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Chinese embassies and consulates in Pakistan will continue to urge relevant departments in Pakistan to do a good job in the aftermath and the treatment of the injured, and resolutely crack down on terrorist organizations involved in the case.

The blood of the Chinese cannot be shed in vain, and the mastermind behind this incident will surely pay the price.
