QUETTA, 10 June: Balochistan Home Minister Sarfraz Bugti has said that the reports regarding the killing of two abducted Chinese nationals could not be confirmed until their dead bodies were not received.

The Home Minister informed that security forces search operation was underway in Mastung to recover the abducted Chinese nationals.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Foreign Office in a statement said it was working to confirm authenticity of the reports of killing of two Chinese nationals, kidnapped in Quetta. “We are in constant contact with the Chinese government,” FO said.
Chinese living in Pakistan are our honoured guests and brothers, and we will continue to take all measures to ensure their safety,” the statement concluded.
