Unfortunately, the terrorists were once again successful in orchestrating an act of terror. We take our hat off to these officers who died while serving their country. We send our heartfelt condolences to their families and hope that they will find the strength to deal with this tragedy. Our sacrifices on both sides of the border continue to prove our stance against terrorism. There is no doubt that certain terrorist elements are working against our efforts to restore peace in the region. They wish to see the region plagued with chaos and turmoil for the sake of destabilizing the government. But they’ve been unable to break our shared will and desire to stabilize the region. We will not let our sacrifices go in vain and let our common enemies off the hook. We will continue to work together for the betterment of the region.
