Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday condemned the suspected terrorist attack in Berlin which left 12 people dead and at least 48 injured.

The Prime Minister expressed his grief over the loss of precious lives and said Pakistan stands with Germany in its time of sorrow.

Calling terrorism a “mutual enemy”, the premier said Pakistan is also affected by terrorism and the world would have to combat the menace together.

He added that every possible step is being taken to eradicate terrorism from the country.

A lorry ploughed into a busy Christmas market in Berlin on Monday, killing at least 12 people and injuring dozens more in what police said was a suspected terror attack.

The vehicle mounted the pavement of the market on Breitscheidplatz square near the fashionable Kurfuerstendamm avenue in the west of Berlin, in horrific scenes reminiscent of July´s deadly truck attack in the French Riviera city of Nice.
