Beijing: China on Tuesday strongly condemned the deadly attack on the Saint Petersburg metro in Russia that killed 14 people and expressed willingness to work with the country to tackle the threat of terrorism.

"China is deeply shocked by and strongly condemns the terrorist attack. China extends profound condolences to the victims and sincere sympathies to the families of the victims and the injured," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said in a statement.

 

Calling terrorism a common enemy of the mankind, Hua said China is willing to work with Russia and the international community to tackle the threat and challenges of terrorism to maintain world peace and security, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

A bomb blast tore through a subway train deep under Russia's second-largest city yesterday, killing 14 people and wounding about 40. The security services in Kyrgyzstan on Tuesday said the suicide bomber was from the Central Asian country.
