Minister of Foreign Affairs of Maldives, Abdulla Shahid sent a message of condolence to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, Mohammad Haneef Atmar, following the terrorist attack in Pul-e-Alam, Logar province, Afghanistan.
Minister’s message reads as follows:
“I am deeply saddened by the news of yet another terror attack in Afghanistan.
The Maldives strongly condemns the horrific suicide attack on a guest house in Pul-e-Alam in Logar Province yesterday, which claimed more than thirty lives and wounded up to 90 others.
The targeting of civilians, among them several university students who were breaking their fast at the guest house during the holy month of Ramadan is abhorrent.
The Maldives reiterates its commitment to combat all forms and acts of terrorism.
On behalf of the Government and the people of the Maldives, and on my own behalf, I extend our prayers and heartfelt condolences to the victims and members of the affected and bereaved families.”
