Beijing: China Tuesday strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a school in Pakistan, in which at least 126 people were killed, most of them children.
"We are deeply shocked and grieved by the attack and condemn in the strongest terms the terrorists," Xinhua quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang as saying in a statement.
Qin's reactions came hours after Taliban militants attacked an army-run public school in Pakistan's northwest city of Peshawar Tuesday afternoon.
"China extends heartfelt condolences to the victims and expresses deep sympathy to the wounded and the families of the victims," Qin said.
Stressing China opposes terrorism in any form, Qin said China will continue to firmly support the Pakistani efforts to fight against terrorism, safeguard national stability and save people's lives.
