Adjust font size:

The Pakistani Adviser to Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik Monday said all-out efforts were underway to recover two missing Chinese engineers.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad, Rehman Malik said that Pakistan was doing its level best to find the missing engineers.

He mentioned that the two engineers were targeted and abducted in Dir area in North West Frontier Province.

"The Pakistani government and Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan are in touch and we are working to find them and we are also praying for them," said Rehman Malik.

Two Chinese engineers working with Zhongxing Telecommunication Equipment Company (ZTE) in Pakistan, together with their Pakistani driver and security guard went missing on Friday night last week.

They were on their way home after finishing their work in Lower Dir and the company lost contact with them.

Local tribal elders in the area on Monday held a tribal jirga and announced their complete support to the local administration for safe recovery of the two Chinese engineers, according to official Associated Press of Pakistan.

Rehman Malik said that they should have requested the engineers not go outside without proper security measures.
