We learned with great sorrow that, according to initial reports, at least 21 people were killed and 45 people were injured today (10 January) as a result of the terrorist attack perpetrated near the Parliament of Afghanistan in Kabul.
We strongly condemn this heinous terrorist attack in which many people including, employees of the Parliament, which represents the will of Afghan people, lost their lives. We wish Allah’s mercy upon those who lost their lives and speedy recovery to the wounded, and convey our condolences to the Government of Afghanistan and the brotherly Afghan people.
We are confident that this heinous terrorist attack will not weaken Afghanistan’s determination in the struggle against the challenges it faces. Turkey will continue to extend her solidarity to the friendly and brotherly people of Afghanistan against terrorism and to provide full support to the Government of Afghanistan.
