The United States yesterday strongly condemned the terrorist attack that took place yesterday in Kandahar, Afghanistan, resulting in the death of a number of Emiratis and the wounding of the UAE Ambassador to Afghanistan.

"The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the terror attack in Kandahar that resulted in the deaths of nine people, including 5 Emirati diplomats, and the wounding of many others, including the Emirati Ambassador," a spokesperson of the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi said in a statement.

The U.S. Embassy spokesperson stressed that "an attack on any diplomat is an attack on the right of all diplomats to safely and securely advance and represent their nations around the world."

"The United States stands with the people of Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates as they fight to counter terrorism," the statement said.

The Embassy spokesperson extended the deepest condolences to the families and friends of those killed or injured in the attack. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395305765086.html
