Pakistan urges world not to push South Asian region into arms race

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Monday strongly condemned the multiple terrorist attacks in Jalalabad, on the centennial Independence Day of Afghanistan.
According to a statement released by Foreign Office, these cowardly attacks manifest the desperation of terrorist outfits and spoilers as hopes for peace, stability and national unity in Afghanistan have grown stronger by the day.
Pakistan remains a steadfast partner of Afghanistan, in the joint efforts to defeat all designs aimed at perpetuating instability in the region, reads the press release.
“We continue to firmly stand together with the Afghan nation in these testing times. We also pray for the early recovery of dozens of people reportedly injured in today’s attacks,” the statement added.
A series of bombings struck restaurants and public squares on Monday in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad, wounding at least 34 people, officials said, as the country marked the 100th anniversary of its independence.
