We are deeply saddened by the deaths of two Latvian and three Afghan Army soldiers in an attack today on an outpost in Kunar province, Afghanistan, in which three U.S. soldiers also lost their lives. The United States extends its deepest condolences to the families of all the soldiers killed and wounded in action.
The United States, Latvia and Afghanistan are working together to bring stability to Afghanistan. Today’s tragic loss of life demonstrates the challenges of our common mission and highlights the sacrifice of the brave individuals carrying it out. It also reaffirms our commitment to the Afghan people and the importance of working together to achieve peace and stability in the region.
