Musharraf condemns attack on Parliament House

Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on Thursday sent a message to Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee strongly condemning the attack on Parliament House and conveying his deep condolences to the bereaved families.

The message said: "I was shocked to learn about the attack earlier today by armed intruders on the Indian Parliament building in New Delhi. I have been saddened by the loss of life and injuries suffered by Indian security personnel."

Conveying sympathies to the government and people of India as well as deep condolences to the bereaved families, Musharraf said, "My government strongly condemns the attack."

"Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration," he said.

Earlier, Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman Aziz Ahmad Khan condemned the terrorist attack on the Parliament House, but declined to react to reports that Pakistan-based Kashmir militant groups could be behind the shootout.

"The Government of Pakistan has received with shock the news about the attack on the Indian Parliament building in New Delhi by armed intruders, which has resulted in a number of casualties," Khan said.

"The government strongly and unequivocally condemns the attack," he said.
