China will do all it can for safe return of its nationals kidnapped from Quetta
China said on Thursday it will do all it can to ensure the safe return of two citizens kidnapped in Pakistan and it promised new measures to protect Chinese people and companies working in the country, an important link on its Silk Road infrastructure plan.
Gunmen pretending to be policemen kidnapped two Chinese language teachers in the Pakistani city of Quetta, in the province of Baluchistan, on Wednesday.
"China will continue to make maximal efforts alongside Pakistan to strive for the safe return of the kidnapped individuals as soon as possible,” foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a regular briefing in Beijing.
"We will also take further actions to ensure the safety of Chinese individuals and organizations in Pakistan,” he added.
