 According to news media reports on Monday apart from disrupting vital infrastructure projects, the recent suicide attack in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province has shaken the confidence of Chinese nationals working in Pakistan.

Pakistan security analyst said that some are considering leaving the country due to safety concerns.

Pakistani government has pledged to bring the perpetrators to justice.

The recent incident has eroded trust, the analyst said.

Chinese social media reflects growing anxiety, with calls for stricter security measures to protect Chinese lives, writes Pakistani security analyst Muhammad Amir Rana in a daily newspaper Dawn.

The Shangla terrorist attack on the Chinese engineers’ vehicle is having consequences, it stated.

Chinese companies have suspended work on three critical hydropower projects: the Dasu dam, the Diamer-Basha dam, and the Tarbela 5th Extension.

Pakistan security analyst said some residents in the area may sympathize with the Uighur community in Xinjiang, and others may dislike the presence of foreigners on their land. These factors could be nurturing negative perceptions about Chinese nationals in the region.

The blasphemy accusation against a Chinese official at the Dasu dam site last year is another example. The incident highlighted that tensions could erupt, he said.
