The United States strongly condemns today's attack on scores of innocent Pakistanis in northwest Pakistan. The slaughter of worshipers as they gathered at a mosque for Ramadan's Friday prayers underscores the brutality of those who would target civilians during a time of celebration and reflection for Muslims throughout the world. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones affected by this deplorable violence.
Through their violent actions, terrorists continue to demonstrate blatant disregard for the efforts of the Pakistani people to build a more peaceful and prosperous country in which citizens are free to worship. The United States deeply respects Pakistan’s sacrifices in the fight against extremism and we continue to stand with Pakistan against those who seek to undermine democracy and freedom.
