Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi while addressing a press conference, confirmed, “All of our Chinese friends and officials who work at the consulate, 21 in total, all of them are safe and they have been shifted to a secure location.”

India has condemned the attack on the Chinese consulate.

Jiand Baloch of the Balochistan Liberation Army, taking responsibility of the attack, confirmed that there were three suicide attackers .“They stormed the Chinese embassy in Karachi. China is exploiting our resources,” spokesman Jiand Baloch told over the telephone.

Balochistan, despite its rich mineral and natural gas reserves, remains the poorest province of Pakistan. China, one of Pakistan’s closest allies, has invested billions into the country in recent years as part of a massive infrastructure project that seeks to connect its western province Xinjiang with the Arabian Sea.
