Federal Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle has condemned the attack by armed terrorists on a hotel in Kabul.

In Berlin today (29 June) he issued the following statement in this connection:

“I condemn the terrorist attack on a hotel in Kabul. We mourn all those murdered in this senseless act of terror. The perpetrators’ sole aim is to stop the quest for peace in Afghanistan.
