Statement by the Spokesperson on yesterday's attack in Kabul

We witnessed once again a deadly attack in Kabul, against innocent civilians in a mosque  where Shia Muslims were gathering for their prayers. The attack left at least 14 people dead and many injured. We extend our condolences to the families of the victims and wish a speedy recovery to those injured.

 

The European Union stands by the Afghan authorities in the fight against terrorism and calls on all Afghan people to stay united in support of the efforts to fight this global threat.
