Condemning the hei­nous act which targeted innocent people, the President said it was rep­rehensible and ignoble for terrorists to target a holy land, where millions of Muslims from around the globe gather for pilgrim­age.

In the telephone con­versation with King Salman, the president reiterated the need to strengthen international support and coalition in the fight against terror­ism and violent extrem­ism, noting that when the world stands togeth­er, there is no way good would not prevail over evil.
