ISLAMABAD (APP) – Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Jiang Zaidong reaffirmed on Thursday that China would fully support Pakistan’s efforts to combat terrorism.

In a televised interview, the ambassador stated that China would ensure the security of the people and interests of the two brotherly countries, pledging to work shoulder to shoulder with Pakistan.

The ambassador underscored his country’s commitment to advancing the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), emphasising its transformative impact.

“With over $25 billion in direct investments and substantial infrastructure development, the CPEC has not only created thousands of jobs but also facilitated significant advancements in power generation and transportation infrastructure,” he added.

He underscored the shared destiny of both nations, envisioning a broader societal impact through their collaboration.

Regarding the terrorist attack on Chinese nationals [working on the Dasu dam], the ambassador praised the Pakistani government for its swift response and thanked the people of Pakistan for their solidarity and condolences.
