Associated Press

ISLAMABAD (AP) — The Pakistani president has assured Beijing’s top diplomat that his country will boost security for all Chinese nationals working on multi-billion dollar projects in Pakistan. President Arif Alvi made the pledge on Friday during a meeting with visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang in Islamabad. The two spoke ahead of a mini-summit on Saturday in the Pakistani capital, during which Pakistan’s foreign minister will host Qin and also Afghanistan’s Taliban-appointed foreign minister. China has been demanding more security from Pakistan for its nationals working since 2021, when a suicide bomber killed nine Chinese and four Pakistanis in an attack in the northwest.
