BISHKEK, August 30. /TASS/. Kyrgyz Foreign Minister Erlan Abdyldayev has condemned the suicide car bomb attack on the Chinese Embassy in Bishkek on Tuesday morning, saying China will be updated on the investigation.
"Abdyldayev roundly condemned the terror attack on the embassy compound, saying the concerned agencies immediately reacted to the developments and took all necessary measures," the press service of the Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry quoted the minister as saying in a telephone conversation with Chinese counterpart Wang Yi.
The top Kyrgyz diplomat also said President Almazbek Atambayev had ordered the competent agencies to "carry out a thorough investigation".
"The minister noted that the Chinese side will be updated on course of investigation, and pledged that all guilty parties will be certainly found and subject to deserved punishment," the press service said in its report.
Bishkek confirmed that it was ready to take "necessary measures to protect the diplomatic mission of the People’s Republic of China in accordance with rules of international law".
A car driven by a suicide bomber exploded on Tuesday morning after ramming the gates of the Chinese Embassy in capital Bishkek. None of the Chinese diplomats was injured.
The terrorist was killed in the attack, and two Kyrgyz nationals were injured. The blast was so strong that it could be heard almost in all neighborhoods of the Kyrgyz capital.
