Statement of Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos on the Lahore, Pakistan attack

28 March 2016

I join the league of nations in condemning in the strongest possible terms the unspeakable acts of terrorism against innocent civilians in a park in Lahore, Pakistan during Easter celebration.

I pray that our countrymen are safe in Pakistan and I urgently await a report from the Department of Foreign Affairs on the security of our fellow Filipinos there. I likewise call on the DFA to give all possible assistance to all our compatriots in Pakistan.

I also appeal to all our compatriots in Pakistan and elsewhere in the Middle East and around the world to take extra caution and make their safety a paramount concern.
