Colonel Wu Qian, deputy director of Information Services Department and spokesman of the Ministry of National Defense, also expressed condolences to the victims' families, stressing that China opposes all types of terrorism and is committed to cooperating with the international community in the fight against terrorism.
He also echoed Xi's and the Chinese army's determination to serve and protect Chinese national sovereignty against terrorists.
The number of Chinese and Chinese-owned businesses migrating overseas has surged in number, exceeding 100 million in recent years.
Providing security for these overseas citizens has gotten more complicated for Beijing even as international emergencies happened more frequently in recent years. Still, China wants to ensure the safety of its people wherever they may be.
About 20 kidnap victims have been rescued from overseas kidnappings and hijackings; 613 citizens were safely extracted from tumultuous Yemen; and 5,685 Chinese have returned safely from Nepal after a dangerous earthquake.
Beijing has solved a total of 60,000 consular protection cases worldwide that dealt with various security and safety concerns.
Beijing had even deployed warships to evacuate overseas Chinese who were in danger. Such deployment of its navy fleet demonstrates the Chinese troops' capability to help and assist in times of need.
China's implementation of the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020) is expected to further increase the number of Chinese living and working abroad.
