UNTED NATIONS, November 28. /TASS/. The UN Security Council has condemned an attack on a vehicle of the British embassy in Kabul that the Taliban movement claimed responsibility for.
On Thursday the Security Council members said in a statement for media outlets that they expressed their concern over the threat the Taliban, al-Qaeda and other terrorist and extremist organisations along with illegal armed groups pose for the local population, national security forces and for foreign military and international efforts in Afghanistan.
The Security Council “condemned in the strongest terms the attack on November 27 in Kabul which resulted in a number of deaths and injuries to civilians and security personnel, for which the Taliban has claimed responsibility.”
The Council members “underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice, and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Afghan authorities in this regard.”
On Thursday a suicide bomber hit a vehicle of the United Kingdom’s embassy, killing five people, including an Afghan member of embassy staff and a British guard, and wounding another 30 people, including five children.
Later in the day fighters attacked a residential area housing a non-governmental organisation working in the country.
