"China strongly condemns the terrorist attack. We offer our condolences to Pakistan personnel who sacrificed their lives and our sympathy to the family of the victims," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said, adding that there were no Chinese casualties.
"The Pakistani security forces took swift measures to take on the terrorist forces and protect the regional security and stability.
"China appreciates their efforts and will continue to support Pakistan in counterterrorism efforts and we believe the Pakistani government and security forces have the ability to maintain national security and stability.
"We noticed Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan condemnation of the attack. He called it an attempt to sabotage the economic projects in Pakistan. He also said that Pakistan should not allow this agenda to succeed. We consistently support Pakistan's development and will continue to offer our support for the country's development," Geng added.

Chinese nationals working on the project have often been targeted, a scenario that worries Beijing.
