Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday called on South Asian nations to unite to eliminate terrorism.
In a twitter message, strongly condemning the terror attack in Pakistan’s Lahore city on Sunday, Sirisena said his condolences were with the loved ones of the victims of the attack which killed at least 72 people and injured 250, Xinhua news agency reported.
The suicide bombing at Gate No.1 of the crowded Ghulam-e-Iqbal park killed Christian families celebrating Easter.
A faction of the Pakistani Taliban, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it deliberately targeted Christians celebrating Easter.
