Islamabad [Pakistan], April 29 (ANI/Xinhua): The Pakistani Foreign Ministry on Friday condemned the terrorist attacks which happened in Mazar-i-Sharif capital of Afghanistan’s northern Balkh province causing the death of innocent Afghan civilians.
The foreign ministry in a statement expressed its condolences to the families of the deceased, adding that the government accompanied by the people of Pakistan stands in union with the Afghans.
