It’s premature to say who was behind the Charsadda varsity attack: FO

ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Thursday said it is premature to draw any conclusion that who was behind the barbaric attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda.

Addresing his weekly press briefing, FO spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said it was too early to say who was behind the attack before investigations are complete.

He said the investigation is under way and will be completed shortly.

“We will take action against terrorists and their facilitators involved in attack on Bacha Khan University in the light of complete investigation.”

He said the terror attack has further strengthened resolve of the nation for elimination of terrorism from the country.

The spokesperson said Pakistan maintains contacts with the Afghan government at various levels to find a solution to different issues related to the security.

He said Pakistan desires peace in Afghanistan and the recent Heart of Asia conference in Islamabad was a big step in that direction.

He said meetings of four-nation group on Afghanistan will continue and all issues related to the reconciliation process involving the Afghan government and Taliban will be resolved within its framework.

To a question, the spokesperson said Daesh does not have organized presence in Pakistan.

To another question, Qazi Khalilullah said foreign-secretary level talks between Pakistan and India are going to be held in near future and both sides are in touch on that count.
