Pakistan has strongly condemned the terrorist attack at Aden airport in Yemen, targeting the cabinet members of the newly formed government in the country.

In a statement, Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs extended sincere condolences on the loss of precious lives and wished speedy recovery for the injured.

“We believe this attack was not just condemnable as an act of senseless violence and terrorism, it was also reprehensible as an attempt to undermine the recent efforts by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and its positive results, that aimed at fostering enhanced peace and security in Yemen,” read the statement.

Pakistan has urged the international community to ensure respect for the territorial integrity of Yemen and to support efforts aimed at promoting peace and security in the country.
