The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE) firmly condemned the attack committed on Tuesday on a school in Peshawar, the main town in northwestern Pakistan, that has left, until now, at least 130 dead, mostly children.

“Nothing can justify this terrorist act of extreme violence and unimaginable brutality. The entire international community must condemn such barbaric acts, such savage attacks in which children fall as innocent victims. Those responsible for the tragedy in Peshawar must be held accountable immediately”, said Minister of Foreign Affairs Bogdan Aurescu, according to a MAE release quoted by Agerpres.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs addresses condolences to the families of those murdered and expresses its solidarity with the Pakistani people in these moments of hardship.
