Brussels, Feb 9 (IANS) European Union (EU) Commissioner for external relations, Betina Ferrero-Waldner, Monday condemned the killing of a Polish engineer by Taliban militants in Pakistan, EuAsiaNews reported.
“The perpetrators of this appalling terrorist crime must be pursued and brought to justice. I condemn in the strongest possible terms this despicable act of violence,” she said in a statement.
Peter Stanczak was beheaded Feb 7 by Taliban militants in northwest Pakistan.
“The EU remains steadfast in its support for strengthening the institutions of the Pakistani state, and is ready to support all efforts to reinforce stability in the country,” Waldner said.
Stanczak was seized by militants who ambushed his vehicle in Pakistan’s Attock district, about 85 km from capital Islamabad, Sep 28. They first killed his driver and two guards and offered to exchange him for 61 of their colleagues held by Pakistan.
