Statement by U.S. Embassy Kabul Special Chargé d’Affaires Ambassador Hugo Llorens on the Terrorist Attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan

March 1, 2017

The U.S. Embassy condemns today’s deadly attacks in Kabul in the strongest possible terms.  To callously target Afghan men and women who devote their lives to serving and defending their fellow citizens, as the Taliban did today, is an act of extraordinary cowardice.  We share the sorrow of all Afghans over these heinous acts, which only strengthen our resolve to continue to work tirelessly in pursuit of a peaceful future for Afghanistan.  I extend our deepest heartfelt condolences to the families, friends, and coworkers of the victims of these despicable criminal attacks.
