Referring to the recent Quetta terrorist attack as a ‘national tragedy’, Shahbaz said, “The nation’s sympathy is with the families of the martyred while terrorists have no faith or religion. Thus, they are avowed enemies of mankind.”
Shahbaz Sharif also said that opposition to the China Pakistan Economic Corridor was tantamount to opposing Pakistan.
The Chief Minister stated, “With the support of the nation and with the help of a unified effort, we will be able to defeat the terrorists. They are a burden on our homeland and we must eliminate them.”
Monday’s suicide bomb attack claimed the lives of more than seventy people and injured scores of others. The attack withdrew worldwide condemnations from the United States as well as the United Nations.
