Kabul was hit by terror once again: last night's attack against a residential compound for international organisations claimed the lives of over a dozen people and injured more than one hundred.
The European Union extends its sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims and wishes a swift recovery to those who were injured.
This attack, claimed by the Taliban, seeks to undermine current efforts to achieve durable peace for Afghanistan. Violence and the killings of civilians must stop once and for all, so peace the people of Afghanistan deserve and demand can become a reality.
The European Union reaffirms once again its strong commitment to stand by the Afghan people and authorities in the fight against terrorism and to support the current international efforts aiming at reaching peace in Afghanistan.
