BEIJING: China has warned its nationals in Pakistan of plans for a series of imminent "terrorist attacks" on Chinese targets in the country.

Thousands of Chinese are working in the country as part of its $57 billion investment in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which aims to link China with the Middle East and Europe.

"It is understood that terrorists plan in the near term to launch a series of attacks against Chinese organisations and personnel in Pakistan," the Chinese embassy in Pakistan said in a statement on its website.

The embassy warned all "Chinese-invested organisations and Chinese citizens to increase security awareness, strengthen internal precautions, reduce trips outside as much as possible, and avoid crowded public spaces".

It also asked Chinese nationals to cooperate with police and the military, and to alert the embassy in the event of an emergency.
