Comments and statements by Foreign Ministry Spokesman
Comment by the Information and Press Department on a terrorist attack in Afghanistan
On April 22, a terrorist act took place in western Kabul at a voting registration centre. The suicide bombing killed 57 people and injured over 110. The Afghan branch of the ISIS terrorist organisation claimed responsibility for this criminal action.
We resolutely condemn this inhuman act aimed against the election process and the development of a peaceful and democratic Afghanistan.
We express our deep condolences to the victims’ families and wish a speedy recovery to the injured. We call on the Afghan authorities to take all necessary measures to guarantee the security of this year’s parliamentary election and elections to district councils.
