Remarks On Mosque Bombing in Pakistan

Remarks On Mosque Bombing in Pakistan

Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
NATO Headquarters
Brussels, Belgium
December 4, 2009

"Well, from what I saw in the television news reports, this was an attack on a mosque. And it just is extraordinarily threatening to the people of Pakistan, their places of worship, along with institutions of their state. Schools, markets are the targets of these terrorists who indiscriminately kill and maim. And I think it certainly underscores the importance of the work we’re doing here. And I want to thank my colleague, Minister Sikorski for the very significant commitment that Poland has made."
