BEIJING, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has condemned the recent terrorist act in the Afghan capital, SCO Secretary-General Dmitry Mezentsev said on Monday.
Twenty-one people, including 13 foreigners, died in a suicide bomber attack on January 17. “No one can justify the death and mutilation of dozens of civilians in Afghanistan and neighboring countries as well as of employees of international organizations such as the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund (IMF),” Mezentsev noted.
“The Shanghai Cooperation Organization conveys its feelings of compassion and presents condolences to the families and relatives of the dead,” the SCO member states said in their statement.
They noted that the recent terrorist act had made it urgent for the world community to build further interaction in the struggle against terrorism and extremism in any forms and manifestations.
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization consists of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Afghanistan has the status of an SCO observer.
