Yesterday, 26 lives, including members of the police, were taken and over 50 others injured in a terrorist attack in Lahore. The vibrancy of Pakistani society, its diversity, and the clear wish of the majority of the Pakistani people for peace, must not be endangered by the minority who oppose or seek to destroy it. The European Union expresses its deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the attack. To those who were injured, we wish a quick and full recovery. The European Union stands alongside the country's authorities and the people of Pakistan in their and our common fight against terrorism and extremism. We are determined to strengthen our cooperation with Pakistan in this regard.
