"Malala's swift and full recovery is our absolute priority but we are also determined to do all we can to champion education for women and girls in Pakistan. The people of Pakistan have paid a high price from terrorism and extremism. We will stand by all those who, like Malala, are courageously defending the rights of women, in Pakistan and around the world."
Malala Yousufzai, the 15-year-old girl shot in the head by the Taliban in Pakistan, has been reunited with her lifelong friend who was injured in the same attack.
