A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (27 January) on the attack in Kabul:
“We condemn the perfidious attack in Kabul, which claimed dozens of lives today, in the strongest possible terms. We share in the grief of the victims’ friends and families. Our thoughts are also with the large number of Afghan emergency responders who are doing their utmost to treat the wounded at this very difficult time.
The people of Afghanistan have experienced enough senseless suffering. The brutal violence will merely strengthen the resolve of Afghanistan and its friends in their search for peace. Germany stands resolutely shoulder to shoulder with the Afghan people.”
