First and foremost, we send our heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families. We wish a quick and speedy recovery to those who are injured.

This latest act of terror joins the list of many in the last few days. It is safe to say that the terrorists are fully focused on pushing their deadly agenda forward. They continue to prey upon innocent civilians in their bid to spread fear and chaos. Those who continue to support conspiracy theories should realize that the brave Pakistani soldiers are sacrificing their lives daily in trying to protect the nation from the same culprits. We share a common stance against terrorism, and fully support the Pakistani government in their efforts to counter insurgency. Our officials continue to meet to address our common concerns in the region, as evident by the recent meeting between Gen. Joseph F. Dunford and Gen. Raheel Sharif. We will continue to build on our improving relationship, and certainly hope to stay unified against our common enemies in the region.
