Pakistan on Friday strongly condemned the desecration of Holy Quran at a US airbase in Afghanistan
“On behalf of the government and the people of Pakistan, we condemn in strongest possible terms the desecration of Holy Quran in Afghanistan,” foreign ministry spokesman Abdul Basit told a press briefing here in Islamabad.
“It is absolutely important that such utterly irresponsible and reprehensible things do not recur,” he added.
US President Barack Obama had to apologize to the Afghan nation for the incident, which the Afghan presidency blamed on a US officer at the main US-run airbase of Bagram in Afghanistan.
14 Afghans and at least 2 US soldiers have succumbed to the violent demonstrations for going on for days in Afghanistan.
