September 26, 2013 15:30 IST

Pakistan on Thursday condemned the terror attacks in Jammu region and said it was imperative that senseless act of violence do not deter the two countries from pursuing a path to a better future for their peoples.

"Terrorism is a pernicious evil. Pakistan has been its foremost victim. We are committed to leaving no stone unturned to eliminate the spectre of terrorist violence from our society and our region," a statement from the Pakistan High Commission said.

It said Pakistan strongly condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.

"Our hearts go out in sympathy to the families of all those who fell victim to the acts of terrorist violence in Jammu on Thursday. It is imperative that senseless act of violence do not deter us from pursuing a path to a better future for our peoples," it added.

Heavily-armed militants dressed in army fatigues on Thursday stormed a police station and an army camp in Jammu region killing eight persons, including a Lieutenant Colonel, barely two days ahead of the meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif in New York.
