Statement of Condolence from Chairman Edward Royce

Our hearts go out to the families of the innocent students who were murdered in Peshawar.

I have visited Peshawar and have seen schools in the region during our delegations visits.

When I close my eyes I can remember the expressions on those young faces -- excited to learn.

My hope is that the armed forces of Pakistan are successful in securing the peace.

The people of Pakistan do not deserve the specter of terrorism in their country..

All of us around the world who care about Pakistan and its people wish for peace and justice, economic prosperity, and opportunity for the future of Pakistan.

May all the leaders do the right thing for justice and peace for all people of Pakistan.


Congressman Ed Royce

Chairman Of US House Committee On Foreign Relations
