Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin expressed strong denunciation of the suicide blast, urging Pakistan to "severely punish" the perpetrators and "earnestly protect the safety of Chinese nationals, organizations and projects" in the country.

Wang also extended deep condolences to the victims of the attack and conveyed his heartfelt sympathy to the victims’ families.

The terrorist attack took place at Gwadar district of Pakistan's southwest Balochistan province on Friday. Two children were killed and three were wounded, including a Chinese national.

“Terrorism is the enemy of all humanity,” Wang stressed. “China firmly opposes any force using terrorism as a mean to seek political gain and will continue to cooperate with the Pakistan government to fight off terrorist organizations.”
