MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
We strongly condemn the terrorist attack organized on October 8 in a Shiite mosque in the city of Kunduz (Afghanistan), as a result of which about 150 people died and about 200 people were injured. The ISIS terror group claimed responsibility for the attack.
We regard this barbaric action as aimed at destabilizing the situation in Afghanistan at a new stage in its history, at undermining the line of those forces that are interested in inter-Afghan reconciliation and the establishment of interethnic and inter-confessional accord in the country. We hope that the new Afghan authorities will take all necessary measures to find and punish the organizers of the terrorist attack, as well as intensify efforts to eradicate the ISIS threat in Afghanistan.
