Islamabad, April 29 - Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf said Sunday that the war against terrorism would continue and the terrorists would be hounded until end.
Musharraf, presently on a visit abroad, made the remarks while talking on phone to Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao, who was the prime target of Saturday's suicide attack in Pakistan's northwest frontier province.
Musharraf inquired about the health of the minister and advised that all necessary medical facilities be provided to those injured in the Charsadda suicide bombing, which left at least 28 people killed and over 40 injured.
Sherpao survived the attack but sustained injuries on his legs from flying shrapnel and pellets.
Musharraf said that Pakistan was playing a key role in the war against terrorism and such dastardly acts of terrorists would not make 'any dent in our morale'.
He said the war against terrorists would continue until their total extermination and they would be hunted down until end.
Meanwhile, in an interview Sunday with the private Geo TV, Sherpao said the suicide attack had strengthened his determination to fight against terrorism, which is the mission of his life.
He said the incident would not weaken his determination against terrorism, adding that such an attack was not new for him as his brother Hayat Sherpao was also martyred in a bomb blast.
