STATEMENT ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE SPOKESPERSON
OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY

On suicide bomb attack in Kabul

United Nation General Assembly President Srgjan Kerim strongly condemns the suicide attack outside the Indian Embassy in Kabul. The President is deeply saddened and outraged over the loss of life and expresses his deepest condolences to the families of the victims of this cowardly act. He reiterates that such acts of terrorism are unacceptable in all their forms and manifestations, committed by whomever, wherever and for whatever purposes.

This brutal, criminal act should further underscore the determination of Member States to advance vigorously on the implementation of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy that was adopted by the General Assembly in September 2006.
