Share India's pain: Pakistan on blasts
Islamabad, Feb 22 : Pakistan on Friday condemned the twin blasts in Andhra Pradesh capital Hyderabad on Thursday that killed 16 people.
Condemning the attack, Pakistan said terrorism in all its forms and manifestations is one of the most serious threats to international peace and security.
"Pakistan strongly condemns the bomb blasts in Hyderabad, India, last night causing several deaths and injuries," Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
"Terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security," the ministry said.
"All acts of terrorism are unjustifiable regardless of their motivation. Being itself a victim of terrorism, Pakistan fully understands and shares the pain and agony of the people of India. Our prayers and thoughts are with the families of victims of this terrorist attack," it said.
The death toll in the two blasts that rocked crowded areas of Andhra Pradesh capital Hyderabad on Thursday evening rose to 16, officials said on Friday.
At least 117 people were injured in the two blasts that ripped through the city as the finger of suspicion pointed towards the Indian Mujahideen (IM).
