eMBASSY MEDIA statement ON THE LATEST SUICIDE ATTACK IN KABUL
January 20, 2014
Ottawa - The Embassy of Afghanistan in Ottawa condemns in the strongest terms the latest barbaric suicide attack on Kabul’s The Taverna du Laiban restaurant.
The devastating terrorist attack targeting a civilian site and inflicting heavy human loss and injury among civilians, UN personnel and foreigners including two Canadians, Peter McSheffrey and Martin Glazer , is a stark reminder that the enemies of Afghanistan and enemies of peace are bent upon their proxy extremist agenda, who must be fought against with resolve, vigor and determination.
The two audit team members working for Samson & Associates Consulting Firm were in Kabul as part of Canadian contributions in the efforts for rebuilding and development in the country.
The Embassy would like to express profound sympathies and condolences to the bereaved families, loved ones and colleagues of the victims.
