The message reads, in part:
“Killing people during a religious ceremony is further evidence of the barbaric and inhuman nature of terrorism. Those behind this crime should not escape retribution.
I would like to reaffirm Russia’s commitment to further build up antiterrorist cooperation with its Pakistani partners.”
The President of Russia asked to pass on his words of sincere sympathy to the families and loved ones of the victims, as well as wishes for a speedy recovery to all the wounded.
