Statement by U.S. Ambassador John R. Bass on Suicide Attack in Kabul

I strongly condemn today’s horrific and indiscriminate attack on civilians at a cultural and social center in Kabul.

On behalf of all my colleagues, I extend sincere and heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the victims.  This incident once again demonstrates the depravity of those who seek to undermine peace and stability in Afghanistan.  We remain confident the Afghan government and people, supported by their friends and partners, will defeat those behind these terrible acts.

The United States continues to stand with all Afghans in their pursuit of peace, security, and prosperity.
