Paris, September 7, 2011
France strongly condemns today’s double bomb attack in Quetta, Baluchistan Province, which according to the latest report has killed 24 people and injured over 80 others.
She extends her condolences to the bereaved and assures the injured of her sympathy.
France reaffirms her solidarity with the Pakistani people, who are the first victims of these cowardly, barbaric attacks. Terrorism threatens the stability of the Pakistani state and its democratic institutions. As President Sarkozy reminded Prime Minister Gilani during his recent visit to Paris, France will continue supporting the Pakistani government and people in their fight against terrorism./.
