Washington: American-Pakistan Foundation
Wednesday condemned the failed Times Square bombing plot, saying
such acts of one individual or group are not representative of
the majority of the community.

Joining the Pakistani-American groups in condemning
the terrorism in all its forms, the recently formed American
Pakistan Foundation (APF) said: "We remind everyone that the
acts of one individual or group are not representative of the
majority of the Pakistani-American community."

The shared goals of the two nations were eloquently
expressed at its inaugural event by our keynote speaker
Secretary Hillary Clinton as well as the Foundation`s Honorary
Co-Chairs, General Colin Powell (Ret) and Moeen Qureshi, the
former Pakistan Prime Minister.

"APF`s mission to act as a catalyst to improve the
social and economic condition of the people of Pakistan and to
advance mutual understanding between the people of the US and
Pakistan is even more critical now," it said in a statement.

"Through our activities we aim to build a foundation
for mutual understanding, respect and progressive dialogue
that is essential in today`s globally connected world," the
American Pakistan Foundation said.
