Office of the Spokesman


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 Sharm al-Sheikh, Egypt, killing at least 62 people and wounding scores more.

In his reaction to the news the President said, “I am saddened that today terrorism has claimed yet more innocent lives. Like the terrorist attacks in London recently and all others that we have seen, this terrorist act is shocking and despicable. It is aimed at killing innocent civilians, and I condemn it in the strongest terms.”

“Terrorism is the enemy of Islam, as much as the enemy of any other faith. It is the enemy of humanity. I call once again on all nations to come together and decisively fight this menace to its roots.”

“The people of Afghanistan extend their deepest sympathies to the victims of this attack, and to the Government and people of the brotherly nation of Egypt.”

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.
