This was stated by his deputy spokesman, Farhan Haq, who said in a statement, "This deadly attack ahead of the Eid al-Adha holiday is a reminder to all of us that the scourge of terrorism knows no borders. The Secretary-General stresses the need to bring the perpetrators to justice as soon as possible."
