Vice President condemns Kabul attacks.

New Delhi
May 31, 2017

I am shocked to learn of the terrorist attack in Kabul which has resulted in loss of lives and injuries to innocent civilians.

Such wanton acts of violence can have no justification. The perpetrators and those who support and shelter them should be punished for this crime against humanity.

India remains committed to building a peaceful, secure and prosperous Afghanistan. The people of India stand as one with their sisters and brothers in Afghanistan in this difficult hour.

I offer my sincere condolences to the families of the bereaved. I join the nation in praying for their eternal rest and for the early recovery of the injured.
