Islamabad, Pakistan: Pakistan strongly condemns the dastardly act of targeted assassination of two female judges in Kabul today.
“We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased. This is a brutal act of terrorism. Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
We have repeatedly called for a reduction in violence and a ceasefire in Afghanistan. We strongly believe that there is no military solution to the Afghan conflict. We call upon all parties to accelerate the peace process. Pakistan has also continued to emphasize the need to be vigilant against the spoilers of the Afghan peace process. Pakistan reiterates its abiding commitment towards a peaceful, stable, united, democratic, sovereign, and prosperous Afghanistan,” said a statement issued by the Foreign Office of Pakistan in Islamabad.
BBC reported that women judges were shot dead in an early morning ambush, which also saw their driver wounded. The incident happened in the Qala-e-Fathullah area of Kabul and no group has said it carried out the attack.
