The European Union has condemned the attack on Shuja Khanzada, Home Minister in the Punjab in Pakistan, who was killed along with several other people in a terrorist attack earlier Sunday during a jirga in Mr Khanzada’s home village.
“We express our condolences to the family and friends of Mr Khanzada and others who lost their lives in the attack as well as to the Provincial and Federal Government. We also wish a fast recovery to all those injured,” said the spokesperson for the European Union External Action in a press statement.
The statement added that the EU continues to support Pakistan’s efforts to fight terrorism, including by effective enforcement of its ban on terrorist organisations and hate speech.
