BEIJING, May 27 (Xinhua) -- China supports Pakistan in continuing investigation into a deadly terror attack on Chinese nationals and bringing to justice all the perpetrators, foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said on Monday.

China attaches great importance to the key progress made by the Pakistani side on the investigation, and will continue to work with Pakistan to strengthen security cooperation and ensure the safety and security of Chinese personnel, projects, and institutions in Pakistan, Mao said at a press briefing.

On March 26, a suicide bomber riding on an explosive-laden vehicle attacked a convoy of Chinese nationals heading towards a hydropower project, killing five Chinese and their Pakistani driver in the Besham area of Shangla district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.   

Pakistan's National Counter-Terrorism Authority Coordinator Muhammad Tahir Rai said Sunday that security forces have arrested 11 suspects accused involved the attack.   

Mao said that terrorism is a common enemy of humanity and a scourge against regional development and stability.

China calls on countries in the region to strengthen counter-terrorism cooperation, root out all terrorist organizations, remove their breeding ground, and protect the common security and development interests of all countries, she said.
