“We condemn in the strongest possible terms such blatant acts of terrorism and the consequential loss of innocent lives. It is particularly reprehensible that Members of Parliament are being specifically targeted,” the External Affairs Ministry said in a statement.

“We were specially grieved to hear that many children were amongst the victims of this attack,” it added.

“We greatly regret the death in this attack of Mr. Mustafa Kazimi, a distinguished former Minister of the Government of Afghanistan.

“Such acts underline the need for a renewed commitment by the international community to the Government and People of Afghanistan in their task of developing a democratic, stable and prosperous nation,” the MEA said.

Over 40 people, including six lawmakers, were reportedly killed in the suicide attack, which was termed as the deadliest attack since the 2001 fall of the Taliban. (ANI)
