US Mission in Pakistan condemns attack on Punjab home minister

Islamabad: The US Mission in Pakistan on Monday strongly condemned the terrorist attack on Punjab Home Minister Col (r) Shuja Khanzada’s offices in Attock and extended its deepest sympathies and condolences to the families of the victims of Sunday’s violence.

Such blatant disregard for human life is unacceptable and contrary to the aspirations of the Pakistani people for a secure, stable, and prosperous nation.

The United States remains committed to the people of Pakistan and to the Pakistani government’s efforts to fight terrorism. We support Pakistan’s determination to bring to justice those behind the attack and are prepared to provide assistance, if requested, to government authorities investigating this reprehensible act.
