China urges restraint following Iranian strike on Pakistan territory.

China has called on Pakistan and Iran to exercise restraint and avoid actions leading to an escalation of tension after an Iranian air strike in Balochistan province resulted in casualties. Both nations, despite historical suspicion over militant activities, seem cautious about provoking each other. The strike targeted bases of the militant group Jaish al-Adl, which seeks an independent Balochistan and operates across Afghanistan, Iran, and Pakistan. While the situation remains tense, diplomatic efforts are underway to prevent further escalation.
