ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Wednesday expressed his deep sorrow and grief over the horrific killings in Norway and urged all countries to stand united against extremism and take collective measures to counter it.

Gilani visited the Norwegian Embassy and conveyed his sympathy and condolence with the Charge d’Affaires of Norway, Tere Thodesen. He expressed deep grief over the loss of precious lives in the twin attacks at a youth camp and in the capital Olso that resulted in the deaths of almost a 100 people.

The Prime Minister said the people of Pakistan, also being the victim of extremism and terrorism, fully understand the shock and grief of the people of Norway.

He said the extremist approach needs to be countered as these acts were not confined to one country or region but negatively impacting the humanity.

The Prime Minister also signed the condolence book and wrote his remarks.
