I strongly condemn the cowardly attack today in Afghanistan. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who were injured and the families who lost loved ones. One American citizen working for the United Nations was among those who lost their lives, along with other UN international employees and members of the Afghan National Security Forces who bravely fought to protect them.
More than twenty Americans have died in recent days and we honor their service and sacrifice, and our hearts go out to their families.
The United States remains steadfast in its support for the United Nations and its vital work to help the Afghan people build a better future. We remain firm in our commitment to Afghanistan and the Afghan people and to working with the Afghans to conclude their Presidential election process.
