Iran sympathizes with Afghanistan over Kabul terrorist attack

TEHRAN, Nov. 13 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi has expressed regret over a deadly suicide attack in the Afghan capital of Kabul, which killed and injured dozens of people.

In his Monday statement, Ghasemi condoled with the Afghan nation and government over the incident, and offered sympathy to the bereaved families of the victims.

By showing determination, remaining united and being hopeful about the future, Afghanistan can certainly eradicate terrorism and terrorist elements in the country, he said, adding that the realization of that goal plays an important role in creating regional and global security.

Therefore, he noted, all countries and the international community must cooperate with the Afghan government to achieve this goal.

He also stressed that the Iranian government and nation will always support the Afghan government and nation until the restoration of stability, security and peace.

At least six people were killed and 20 others wounded in a suicide attack in the Afghan capital on Monday, which struck in front of a high school in the downtown area of the Afghan capital, near the presidential palace. The attack hit close to where scores of Afghans had been protesting Taliban attacks on the minority Hazara ethnic group, most of whom belong to the Shia branch of Islam.
