The United States condemns in the strongest terms the attack today in Kabul that killed dozens of Afghans and wounded many more. We send our deepest condolences to the loved ones of those killed and injured.

This incident underscores the harm the Taliban and other violent extremists continue to inflict on the Afghan people. Attacks like these only deepen our support for the people and Government of Afghanistan, and their efforts to bring security and stability to Afghanistan.
