The United States of America has termed recent terrorist attacks in Pakistan including the suicide attack at the shrine of Shah Noorani Balochistan ‘devastating’, saying that the US would continue to stay engaged in counter-terrorism efforts in the region.

Speaking at a daily press briefing in Washington, State Department Spokesman John Kirby said, “Quetta police training centre and Shah Noorani attacks obviously are devastating and all the more evidence that we need to continue to take a cooperative, regional approach to dealing with the terrorism challenge.”

John Kerby said that the US would continue to stay engaged in counter-terrorism efforts in the region.
