ISLAMABAD – As Islamabad faces a burgeoning insurgency, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari warned Thursday that terrorism constituted a common danger to both Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Terrorist attacks in Pakistan have increased in recent months, following the termination of a ceasefire by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), an organisation that has taken refuge in Afghanistan. “Both the people of Pakistan and the people of Afghanistan are victims of terrorism,” FM Bilawal stated over the phone with Afghanistan’s acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi.

Stressing the need for joint efforts to eliminate terrorism from the region, the foreign minister said that the authorities of both countries “must do all we can to defeat this menace.” 

During the conversation, the foreign minister also condemned the terrorist attack outside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kabul, which took place yesterday, and offered his condolences.
