MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. Russia condemns the terrorist attack on a Shia Muslim mosque in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Monday, says a commentary of the Russian Foreign Ministry posted on the ministry’s website.
"We resolutely condemn this inhumane terrorist attack," it said. "We express deep condolences to the next-of-kin of the dead and wish an early recovery to the injured. We urge the Afghan authorities to take all necessary action to ensure security and inter-confessional peace in the country," it added.
The ministry reminds that this was not the first bloody sortie by Islamic State gunmen in Afghanistan, targeting Shia Muslims. "Obviously, its masterminds are setting the aim of inciting inter-confessional discord with an eye to further escalation of the conflict in Afghanistan," the ministry said.
Thirty-two people were killed and 50 were injured in the blast at a Shia Muslim mosque in the Afghan capital on Monday. The Afghan branch of Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) said it was behind the blast.
