Chinese civilians were attacked in Karachi, Pakistan on 26 April. Four people, including three Chinese nationals, were killed in an explosion near a van near the Confucius Institute at Karachi University. After taking this suicide attack, it is being said that can China do an airstrike on Pakistan? However, this is not the first time that Chinese civilians have been targeted in Pakistan. In the last few years, there have been attacks in Pakistan targeting Chinese nationals several times.
Shahbaz Sharif reached the Chinese Embassy
The seriousness of this attack can be gauged from the fact that after the attack, Pakistan’s PM Shahbaz Sharif reached the Chinese embassy in Islamabad and told China that we will not rest until the criminals are punished. Experts believe that due to the continuous attacks on Chinese citizens in Pakistan, the pressure on Pakistan is increasing and if this continues, then the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor may be in trouble.
What did China say after the attack?
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying has said that we strongly condemn the terrorist attack targeting Chinese teachers at Karachi University and express our condolences to the victims. No one will reduce the friendship between China and Pakistan.
China’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Zhang Jun has said that I strongly condemn the terrorist attack on Karachi University. Sending my deepest condolences to the victims of both China and Pakistan. We will leave no stone unturned to hold the criminals accountable.
Then where did the talk of airstrikes come from?
Hua Jijin, the editor of the Chinese state-run Global Times, said the Baloch Liberation Army had claimed responsibility for the attack. I support the Chinese military to launch direct airstrikes against the camp of this terrorist organization after getting the approval of the Pakistani government.
But why pay attention to Hu’s words?
Experts believe that Hu Jijin is not the Chinese government and not a government representative, but he is one of the main campaigners of the Communist Party of China. In such a situation, better understand the policy of the Chinese government. Experts are seeing this as a way of warning Pakistan. Experts believe that China is trying to tell Pakistan that if it cannot protect Chinese citizens in Pakistan, then leave it to us, and we will handle it.
On social media, many people of Pakistan are opposing China for an airstrike by China, while many people are also talking about the elimination of terror with the help of China.
