The spokesperson reiterated condemnation of the terrorist attack at the Karachi University. He said a terrorist attack anywhere is an affront to humanity everywhere.

Commenting on India, Price said that the US Commission on Religious Freedom in India has demanded sanctions on the Narendra Modi government.
