The U.S. Embassy strongly condemns last night’s attack on a guest house near the Spanish Embassy. The Taliban’s recent attacks in Kandahar, Jalalabad, and Kabul are just the latest examples of the insurgency’s absolute disregard for the lives of innocent Afghans who are working to make their country a better place. We applaud the bravery of the Afghan forces, who quickly responded and undoubtedly saved innocent civilian lives. Our commitment to a secure, stable, and unified Afghanistan remains firm.
