KABUL: President Hamid Karzai condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist attack in the Chinese city of Urumqi that killed and injured many innocent people.
Reports indicate that thirty one people were killed and more than 90 others were injured in an attack on a market in Xinjiang’s capital Urumqi on Thursday.
President Karzai offers his heartfelt condolences to the people and government of China and calls the attack an act by the enemies of peace and stability who don’t want to see our region grow secure, stable and developed. The President stressed that the Afghan people, more than anyone else, can very well understand such pains and grieves as they have long been victims to imposed terrorist attacks.
President Karzai expresses his deep condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a quick recovery to those injured.
