We condemn the horrific attack on a police training academy in Quetta, which has cost the lives of more than 60 people. Our thoughts are with the victims’ friends and families. We express our heartfelt sympathy with the people of Pakistan. This despicable attack demonstrates yet again that international terrorism is a threat to all of us which we must combat in unison.
