New Zealand Parliament today unanimously passed a motion moved by Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters condemning the terror attack on India's Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Jammu & Kashmir's Pulwama district on February 14.

New Zealand's Deputy PM Winston Peters said, ''I move the motion that this House condemns February 14 act of terrorism on Indian CRPF leading to large loss of life. We express solidarity with GoI at this difficult time as well as offer our deep sympathies to those affected.''

Many other nations like US, Russia, France and more have strongly condemned the Pulwama terror attack.

The response in the neighbouring countries was also quick. 

A Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into a bus ferrying CRPF jawans on Thursday in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama killing over 40 people.

The mastermind of the Pulwama attack on Monday was killed in an encounter in the Pinglan area of Pulwama.
