On behalf of the Government and the people of Afghanistan, and my colleagues at the Permanent Mission in Vienna, I wish to express my deepest grief and sorrow for the loss of three American citizens in a shooting at CURE hospital in Kabul on April 24. The three doctors were devoted to helping the needy people of Afghanistan and their selfless commitment to this noble cause will never be forgotten. We are deeply saddened by this brutal attack and wish to offer our heartfelt sympathy and condolences. Our hearts and thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones.
The Government of Afghanistan is committed to fighting such acts of terrorism and is investigating the incident, to ensure that offenders will be brought to justice.
Ambassador Ayoob M. Erfani
