Dear Prime Minister Sharif,
On behalf of the Government and people of Singapore, I offer our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and the people of Pakistan on the savage and dreadful attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar.
Singapore strongly condemns this dastardly act of terror which has killed so many innocent young people. I was deeply saddened to learn that many of these victims were students, who were seeking an education to better their lives. It is a painful reminder of why we are fighting against the terrorist cause, and why we must remain vigilant and resolute in this long battle.
I am confident that Pakistan will face this tragedy with fortitude, and in time prevail against the forces of darkness and evil. Our thoughts are with you and your people during this period of grief.
LEE HSIEN LOONG
HE Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif
Islamic Republic of Pakistan
