Chinese confidence in Pakistan’s security ‘shaken’: Senator Mushahid Hussain

Islamabad: Senator Mushahid Hussain has said Chinese nationals, who are currently staying in the country, seem to be less confident about the government protecting them after the Karachi University suicide blast episode.

“The Chinese confidence in Pakistan’s security system’s ability to protect their citizens and their projects is seriously shaken,” Senator Mushahid Hussain, chairman of the Senate Defence Committee, was quoted as saying by Dawn News.

Senator Mushahid, who led a Senate delegation to the Chinese embassy last week to express his condole­nces over the loss of three Chi­nese lives in a suicide att­ack on their van on the university’s premises last mon­th, was sharing the mood on the Chinese side in a conversation with Dawn on Friday.

“It has caused serious concern and understandable indignation in China. More so, the pattern of attacks is so recurring and it’s clear that Pakistani promises of ‘foolproof security’ are mere words, not matched by countermeasures on the ground,” he maintained.

Criticising the security arrangements, he said security agencies seemed to have been caught napping. “If such attacks continue, not just Chinese but other foreign investors will be forced to review their role in Pakistan,” he said.

A van with Chinese teachers was blasted near the University of Karachi's Confucius Institute recently, after a suicide attack was carried out by a female bomber.

Three teachers and a driver died as a result of the attack, while the fourth teacher sustained injuries.
