Arg, Kabul - H.E. Hamid Karzai, President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, strongly condemned the killing of a doctor and a UNICEF driver in the province of Herat.

The enemies of Afghanistan attacked a UNICEF vehicle in the outskirts of Herat city on Friday, killing a doctor and a UNICEF driver and wounding another.

In his reaction to the news the President said “The enemies of Afghanistan, at the instruction of foreigners, kill those who are providing healthcare to the poorest communities throughout the country.”

“This despicable act of terrorism was aimed at depriving the people of Afghanistan of their right to healthcare and ensuring that Afghanistan remains dependent on other countries’ medical assistance for ever.”

“This is the work of foreign mercenaries who are trying to hinder reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan. Afghans will continue to rebuild their country despite subversive activities by the terrorists. Afghans never kill medical staff.”

The President ordered the relevant authorities to identify the perpetrators of this attack and bring them to justice.

The President expressed his deepest sympathies and condolences to the families of the victims.
