UN Security Council condemns attacks in Pakistan

The UN Security Council today condemned the attacks in Pakistan against a bazaar, which left 31 dead, and the consulate of China, with seven victims.

Council members said in a statement that they appreciated the quick response from the Pakistani authorities and expressed their condolences to the Government and the families of the victims and wished the wounded a quick recovery.

In Karachi, where the diplomatic headquarters are, three armed men started firing and throwing grenades trying to enter the Chinese consulate, where there were 21 people, which they did not achieve.

The situation provoked a confrontation between the security forces and the attackers, which lasted for more than half an hour, until the terrorists were killed.

Half an hour after the attack in Karachi, a terrorist blew up the bombs he carried on a motorcycle in a bazaar in the tribal belt of the country's northwest, killing 31 people and injuring thirty-nine others.

The Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to peace and security and called for those responsible to be brought to justice.

The members of the agency called on States, in accordance with international law and Security Council resolutions, to cooperate with the Government of Pakistan and other authorities in this matter.
