    Beijing will strengthen its anti-terror partnerships with Central Asian countries after a blast at the Chinese Embassy in Kyrgyzstan.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — Beijing will strengthen its anti-terror partnerships with Central Asian countries, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Tuesday after a car bomb went off at the Chinese Embassy in Kyrgyzstan.

    "Terrorism is a common enemy of the global community, the gravest danger for the region. China is also suffering from terrorism. China will strengthen cooperation based on bilateral deals and SCO agreements with Kyrgyzstan and other countries of the region to fight terrorism," Hua said in a statement.

    Earlier in the day, the embassy was reportedly hit by a car bomb blast which left the suicide bomber dead and injured three Kyrgyz security officers. No Chinese diplomats were injured by the explosion.
