    Condemnation

    Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi strongly condemned the blast in Peshawar. The premier also lauded the sacrifices of policemen in the fight against terrorism.

    He said that dastardly acts of the militants cannot deter our law-enforcement agencies and the nation in taking the fight to its logical conclusion. Our resolve to eradicate the menace of terrorism cannot be shaken, said the prime minister.

    Depends what you mean. Are you asking in the context of attacks in Pakistan overall, or specifically in the context of attacks in Pakistan's Northwestern region bordering Afghanistan?

    There are 2 different answers depending on which one you mean.
