ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Friday condemned bomb attacks that killed at least 14 people in the Indian city of Hyderabad, saying "all acts of terrorism are unjustifiable regardless of their motivation".

"Terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

"Being itself a victim of terrorism, Pakistan fully understands and shares the pain and agony of the people of India. Our prayers and thoughts are with the families of victims of this terrorist attack," it added.

Previously, terrorism has been a major thorn in diplomatic relations in the two countries, with India accusing Pakistan in the past for supporting terror groups who had carried out deadly terrorist attacks at a hotel in Mumbai in November 2008.

Correction: In an earlier version of this story, the word thaw was incorrectly used in the last paragraph. The word has now been replaced.
