Condemnation of the Attack in Kabul

The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the December 24 attack on a government building in PD16.  We extend our deepest condolences to the families, friends, and colleagues of the victims and honor the brave first responders who risked their own lives to help the injured.  The United States stands with the government and people of Afghanistan in the face of this kind of violence.  We remain steadfast in our commitment to the cause of peace and will continue to support our Afghan partners to achieve an end to the conflict in Afghanistan.
