For the third time in under a week, civilians in Afghanistan have been the target of terrible terrorist attacks.
“My thoughts and the thoughts of citizens of the whole European Union are with the Afghan people after today’s attack in Kabul. We mourn those whose lives were lost, send our condolences to the families and friends affected, and wish a quick recovery to the injured” – EU top diplomat Federica Mogherini said in a statement.
“These acts are against the people of Afghanistan, against reconciliation, against peace. For too long, the aspiration of many to live in peace has been hijacked by the struggle for power of a few. As the European Union, we have always worked and will keep working with the people of Afghanistan, with its government, with the many who seek peace.”
