Terrorist attack in North-West Pakistan : Statement by Mr. Bernard Kouchner, French Minister of Foreign and European Affairs
(Paris, 12 October 2009)
France utterly condemns today’s suicide
bombing in north-west Pakistan targeting a military convoy as it passed close to
a market, at a time when there was a large number of people and which, according
to the latest report, killed 41 people and injured many others.
In these tragic circumstances, France
extends her condolences to the bereaved and the Pakistani government and people,
whose shocked sadness she shares.
France stands resolutely at the Pakistani
authorities’ side in their fight against extremism and terrorism./.
