France condemns in the strongest possible terms the attacks committed on July 11, 12, 13, and 14 in Pakistan. These were especially cowardly attacks that targeted civilian populations in the period leading up to the elections, and their tragic toll surpassed 150.
We offer our condolences to the victims’ families and to the Pakistani people and authorities.
France assures Pakistan of its solidarity in the fight against terrorism.
As the country prepares to go to the polls on July 25, France is convinced that Pakistani voters, who have always shown great courage, will not allow themselves to be intimidated and will exercise their democratic rights.
