The government of China has vehemently condemned the murder of its three citizens in Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan.

Officials said China issued a statement condemning the attack and calling for Pakistan to “severely punish” the perpetrators and ensure the safety of Chinese citizens.

Gunmen stormed mountaineering base camp of Nanga Parbat peak in Diamer district of Gilgit-Baltistan late on Saturday and shot dead nine foreign trekkers and a Pakistani guide.

The raid killed five Ukrainians, three Chinese and a Russian. One of the victims also held a US passport, a US official said, without giving further details. It was among the worst attacks on foreigners in Pakistan.

Pakistan’s Taliban movement and a smaller militant group both claimed responsibility.

    • no terorist country do always terrrorist work like this ttp is god gift for pakistan open heartly welcome this

  1. Its seems like well planned attack and not easy to reach such hard and harsh areas and as usual poor performance of law enforcement unable to track or arrest terrorists.Local involvement cannot be ignored its not possible without locals.India along with other bad wishers of Pakistan hands cant be rule out because they cant want to see Pakistan peaceful and developed especially because of close relations with China but Pakistan need to improve own security so no space for anti state enemies. Government also need to take serious steps no serious steps have taken against terrorists whether new government or past government.No counter terrorism policy which is also main reason for bad law and order situation.
