Pakistan has strongly condemned the terrorist attack at a Moscow airport, and expressed solidarity with the people and the leadership of Russia.

Pakistan itself has been a victim of terrorist attacks, and the international community must eliminate this menace through joint efforts, Zardari added.

In his message to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani said the government and the people of Pakistan expressed complete solidarity with the people and the leadership of Russia.
