Pakistan strongly condemns the multiple terrorist bomb attacks in Jalalabad today, on the centennial Independence Day of Afghanistan. These cowardly attacks manifest the desperation of terrorist outfits and spoilers as hopes for peace, stability and national unity in Afghanistan have grown stronger by the day.
Pakistan remains a steadfast partner of Afghanistan, in the joint efforts to defeat all designs aimed at perpetuating instability in the region. We continue to firmly stand together with the Afghan nation in these testing times. We also pray for the early recovery of dozens of people reportedly injured in today’s attacks.
