Bhutan has condemned the terror attack on Pathankot Airbase in Punjab, India, on January 2.
India’s Pathankot airbase came under four days of attack from a handful of gunmen killing seven military personnel and left another 20 injured.
A press release from the foreign ministry states that Bhutan was deeply concerned by the terror attack on Pathankot Airbase. “The government and the people of Bhutan express their solidarity with the government and people of India. Bhutan also extends our heartfelt sympathies to the families who have lost loved ones,” it states.
Condemning the terrorist act, it stated that no cause or grievance justifies such heinous crimes. “While the government of India and its security forces responded swiftly and contained the situation, the international community must renew their collective efforts to root out terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” the press release states.
