    UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Tuesday condemned the deadly attack on a police academy in the northern Pakistani city of Quetta.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) On Monday, the attack on the hostel of the police training center in the troubled Pakistan's Balochistan region killed 60 recruits and guards and injured around 120 others.

    "I condemn yesterday’s appalling attack on the police training centre in Quetta, Pakistan. My thoughts are with those who lost loved ones and friends, or were injured, in this callous attack," Johnson said, as quoted by the UK governmental press service.

    He added that attempts to undermine stability of the Asian nation would not prevail and the Pakistanis would make a lot of efforts to create a bright future for their country.

    Pakistani media reported that the Islamic State terrorist group, outlawed in many countries, including Pakistan and Russia, claimed responsibility for the Quetta attack.
