Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks on the Terrorist Attack in London
2017/03/23

Q: In the afternoon of March 22 local time, a terrorist attack happened near the British parliament, killing 5 people and injuring more than 40. What is your comment?

A: China strongly condemns the terrorist attack happened yesterday in London, the UK. We express our deep condolences to the innocent victims and sincere sympathies to the bereaved families and the injured. President Xi Jinping, Premier Li Keqiang, and Foreign Minister Wang Yi have respectively sent messages of condolences to the British side.

Terrorism is the common enemy faced by all countries in the world. China firmly opposes all forms of terrorism, and would like to work with the international community, including the UK, to enhance cooperation, jointly meet the threats and challenges posed by terrorism, and preserve world peace and security.

Follow-up: is there Chinese citizen injured or killed in the attack"?

A: The Chinese Embassy in the UK activated the emergency response mechanism upon learning the attack and issued a consular alert on the website of the embassy. Up to now, one Chinese tourist sustained minor injuries in the attack. We will continue to follow the development closely and properly deal with the follow-up matter.
