The United States strongly condemns today’s attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda. We offer our deepest condolences to the victims and their families during this time of grief. It is particularly appalling that these terrorists continue to attack educational institutions, targeting Pakistan’s future generations. The United States stands with the government and people of Pakistan and their efforts to create a secure, stable, and prosperous country, and we will stand side-by-side with Pakistan in its fight against terrorism.
