The Embassy and Permanent Mission of Afghanistan in Vienna strongly condemns the terrorist attack on Presidential Candidate, Dr. Abdullah Abdullah
The Embassy and Permanent Mission of Afghanistan in Vienna, strongly condemns the terrorist attack on Afghan Presidential candidate, Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, and his team, which took place today in western Kabul.
We express our heartfelt condolences to those who fell victim to the attack, including those persons who were killed and the dozens who were injured in the two blasts.
As was proved in the first round, such cowardly attacks by the enemies of Afghanistan, intent on destroying our budding democracy and on instilling fear into the Afghan people, will not deter our people from marking this first democratic transition of power to a new President in the history of Afghanistan. The Afghan people are determined to sustain the achievements made in partnership with the International Community over the past thirteen years, including the democratic achievements which will culminate in the June 14 run-off.
The Afghan Government is working hard to ensure that those involved and those behind the attacks will be punished for their terrorist acts.
