ASTANA, March 28. /TASS/. Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev condemned on Monday the Sunday terrorist attack in Lahore, Pakistan, which killed more than 70 people and left more than 300 injured.
"Kazakhstan categorically denounces actions of international extremism and terrorism that endanger global security," the Kazakh leader said in a telegram of condolences addressed to Pakistani President Mamnoon Hussain. "The fact that most of the fatalities were women and children touched everybody’s feelings," the telegram went on.
The terrorist attack in Lahore once again confirmed that "there is no place for merciless radical groups and their ideologies in the civilized society," the telegram said.
"The president of Kazakhstan learned with great sadness the sad news about the tragedy in which a lot of innocent people were killed and injured," the press service of the Kazakh president said citing the telegram.
On behalf of the Kazakh people and on his own behalf, Nazarbayev expressed condolences to the next-of-kin of the killed people, to all people of Pakistan and wished an early recovery to the injured.
More than 70 people were killed and more than 300 received injuries in a suicide bomb attack on a park in Lahore targeting Christians celebrating Easter. Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif ordered law enforcement agencies to maximally quickly find the masterminds of the blast and their accomplices, and bring them to justice.
