Beijing, Nov 28 (IBNS): In the wake of the recent attack on the Chinese Consulate in Karachi city of Pakistan, China on Tuesday said such an incident will not  affect the relationship between the two countries.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said any attempt to undermine the friendship between China and Pakistan is 'doomed to fail'.

"When dealing with this incident, the Chinese and Pakistani governments and the two peoples firmly trust each other, support each other and show friendliness towards each other,"  Shuang said while addressing a press conference on Tuesday.

"The facts once again prove that the friendship between China and Pakistan is higher than mountains and deeper than oceans and that our two peoples share weal and woe. China and Pakistan deserve the title of all-weather strategic cooperative partners," he said.

"I would like to stress that any attempt to undermine the friendship between China and Pakistan is doomed to fail. China will maintain close communication with Pakistan on the follow-up matters. We are convinced that the Pakistani side is capable of upholding domestic security and stability and taking firm measures to earnestly safeguard China's interests in Pakistan and protect the Chinese citizens and institutions there," he said.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson expressed his condolence over the death of two Pakistani security personnel during the attack on the consulate.

Terrorists attacked the consulate on Sunday, leaving at least two Pakistani security officials killed.

However, all the three attackers were killed by Pakistani security personnel before they could enter the consulate.
