    Extending her condolences to her family and to the families of all the victims of this assassination attack, Bakoyannis underlined that "Greece condemns the terrorist attack in the most categorical way that, just two weeks ahead of the Parliamentary elections in Pakistan, has led to this tragic loss."

    Lastly, Bakoyannis said that "we are watching the events with great concern, at the same time expressing the wish and the hope that this country will follow the path towards the construction of a democratic regime. This will also constitute the sole vindication of the tragic sacrifice of Benazir Bhutto."
