September 6, 2016

We strongly condemn yesterday’s deadly attack on security forces near the Ministry of Defense in Kabul.

“We offer our deepest condolences to those affected by the attacks and their families.” said U.S. Ambassador P. Michael McKinley. “These horrendous attacks reinforce the callous disregard the Taliban have for the innocent men, women, and children of Afghanistan.  We mourn the loss of all these innocent lives, and those of our steadfast partners in the Afghan security forces.  These brave men and women work tirelessly to usher in a new era of peace in Afghanistan.  We will stand strong with them and all our friends in Afghanistan as they strive to improve citizen safety and security and secure lasting peace in this nation.”
