The United States denounced the suicide assault on Chinese students at the University of Karachi on Wednesday.
On April 26, at least four individuals were murdered, including three Chinese instructors, and four more were injured in a suicide bombing outside the varsity’s Confucius Institute.
In a news conference, US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price condemned the terrorist assault in Karachi, calling it a “real insult to humanity.”
“A terrorist assault anywhere is an affront to humanity everywhere, but a terrorist strike at a university, or at a religious institution, or at any of the venues we’ve seen recently – that is a terrible affront to humanity,” he said when questioned about the suicide attack targeting Chinese nationals.
According to Ned Price, the United States places a high value on its relations with Pakistan. “In response to your inquiry, I’d want to state that we cherish our bilateral partnership. We intend to continue cooperating in areas where we share shared interests with our Pakistani partners. This includes anti-terrorism efforts. This also involves border security “a spokeswoman for the US State Department stated

The KU incident, according to the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD), was a suicide bombing carried out by a burqa-clad woman.
The explosion happened at 1:52 p.m. outside Karachi University’s Confucius Institute, which teaches Chinese. Following the explosion, rescue and security authorities hurried to the scene and roped off the affected regions, starting rescue efforts.
Huang Guiping, the head of the Confucius Institute, Ding Mupeng, Chen Sai, and their Pakistani driver, Khalid, have been identified as the deceased Chinese nationals.
Two of the four injured persons have been identified as Chinese national Wang Yuqing and a security guard called Hamid.
A banned group claimed credit for the attack. Security authorities have initiated an investigation to catch individuals responsible for the explosion, but no major arrests have been made.
