Kerry phones Nawaz

ISLAMABAD - US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday evening phoned Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. Both leaders discussed matters of mutual interest.
Special Correspondent from Washington adds: The United States Thursday strongly condemned the killing of a Pakistani pregnant woman, who was stoned to death by her family outside a court on Tuesday, and called for bringing the perpetrators to justice. In a statement, State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki urged the Pakistani government to take measures to put an end to repeated occurrence of so-called ‘honour killings’ and other forms of violence against women.
Psaki noted that every year, hundreds of women are killed in Pakistan and other countries as a punishment for marrying a man their families have not chosen or for refusing an arranged marriage.
