Afghanistan – Attacks (January 10, 2017)


France utterly condemns the series of attacks that plunged Afghanistan into mourning on January 10. More than 50 people, including 5 UAE diplomats, were killed in several attacks targeted against sites of symbolic significance for Afghan political life in Kabul, Kandahar and Lashkar Gah.

We extend our condolences to the families and friends of the victims of these cowardly and deadly attacks.

France would like to assure the Afghan authorities and people of its wholehearted solidarity.

France is committed to the fight against terrorism and will continue to lend its support to Afghanistan in order to prevent and combat this scourge.
