We condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the attack on Afghan and foreign military trainers which occurred this morning at Afghan National Defense University.

We send our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family of the US major general who was killed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the Afghan and coalition soldiers who were injured in the attack this morning, and their families. We hope for your speedy recovery.

Afghanistan is profoundly grateful for the sacrifices made by Afghan and by coalition forces as they fight side by side to defeat terrorists.

Despite this tragedy, the enduring partnership between the US and Afghanistan remains strong.
