Pakistani Lawmakers Condemn Brussels Attacks

Pakistani lawmakers have unanimously passed a resolution condemning the March 22 bomb attacks in Brussels that left at least 31 people dead and 300 others wounded.

The resolution, passed on March 24 by the National Assembly, or lower house of parliament, calls on the international community to stand united against the terrorism threat.

The lawmakers also observed a minute of silence in support of the Belgian people and in memory of the victims.

Meanwhile, Foreign Ministry spokesman Nafees Zakaria described the Brussels attacks claimed by the Islamic State group as an inhuman and coward act.

"We sympathize with the bereaved families, pray for the speedy recovery of those injured, and express solidarity with the people and government of Belgium," Zakaria added.

RFE/RL has been declared an "undesirable organization" by the Russian government.
