Presidential Palace, Kabul - H.E. Hamid Karzai, President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is disturbed by the news of the series of bomb blasts which occurred in London, UK today, killing at least 2 people and wounding dozens.

In his reaction to the news the President said, “This terrorist act is shocking and despicable. It is aimed at killing innocent civilians, and I condemn it in the strongest terms.”

“The Afghan people send their sympathies to the people of Britain. Afghans have suffered at the hand of terrorists for many years and understand the pain and suffering that terrorism causes. My thoughts are with the families of the victims and those injured.”

This incident reminds us that terrorism continues to pose threat to the peace and prosperity of all nations in the world. It is imperative on the international community, to step up the struggle against this menace until it is decisively defeated from the face of the earth. Afghanistan stands in firm solidarity with those countries that are affected by and are fighting terrorism. We will play our full part in this fight.
