How to Avoid Suicide Bombings in Pakistan: Chinese Experts Give Tips

After the Suicide Bombing in Balochistan, Pakistan, Chinese counter-terrorism experts have made a series of recommendations to Chinese Organisations working in Pakistan to avoid terror strikes. EurAsian Times analyses a Global Times report. 

Chinese organisations should work closely with local officials, build clear communication with security officers and mingle with local people in order to deal with possible terror strikes, said Zhao Huirong, from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

They should improve management coordination and evade any risks and dangers by improving employers’ safety knowledge, Zhao said. The statements came after a suicide bomber detonated his truck filled with explosives in the Dalbandin area of Balochistan, which wounded six people including three Chinese workers.

A PRC official stated that if a Chinese organisation is participating in the CPEC Project in Pakistan then the local authorities must provide adequate security, else the company can also arrange for its own security.

Balochistan is a restive province in Pakistan which has seen violent murders and suicide bombings in the past. Both freedom activists and insurgents believe that any work in Balochistan violates their interests and rights, and that is the reason why they commit terror attacks,” Li Wei, a counter-terrorism expert said.
