We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of Sunday’s heinous attack on a church in Peshawar. We wish those who were injured a full and speedy recovery. The United States joins Pakistani and world leaders in condemning this brutality. We support Pakistan’s efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The United States remains concerned about continuing sectarian violence in Pakistan that has brought heartache to Sunnis, Shia, Christians, and members of other communities across the country. Extremist violence against innocent Pakistani men, women, and children of any faith is an assault on universal human values.
