Afghanistan/attack on NATO forces
Paris, October 29, 2011
France utterly condemns today’s attack on a NATO bus in Kabul that resulted in several deaths.
France pays tribute to the memory of the soldiers of allied nations who sacrificed their lives in the ISAF mission to restore peace to Afghanistan.
She offers her condolences to the families and loved ones of all the military and civilian victims and to the American and Afghan governments.
In carrying out this attack, the terrorists have once again demonstrated their contempt for human life and for the effort being undertaken to restore long-term stability to Afghanistan.
France reaffirms her determination to support Afghanistan’s recovery, with her partners, and her active efforts to eradicate the scourge of terrorism./.
