Condolence letter from the Secretary General of the OSCE

We deeply thank the Secretary General of the OSCE, Ambassador Lamberto Zannier, for his kind condolence letter, and we may quote: “It was with shock and profound sadness that I learned of today’s terrorist attack … Allow me to offer my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to the families of the victims. The OSCE joins the international community in standing united in combatting terrorism in all its manifestations.”

Afghanistan has been an OSCE Partner for Co-operation since 2003 and the OSCE has provided essential programmes and projects for stakeholders from Afghanistan ever since. Furthermore, the OSCE has deployed Election Support Teams to all elections that took place in Afghanistan since 2004.
