Russia strongly reacted against last week’s terrorist attack in Nangarhar province, stressing that it backs up any efforts to provide peace in Afghanistan, the Russian embassy in Kabul said in a statement to DIDPress.

“We strongly condemn this crime. We convey our sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims and wish a speedy recovery to the injured,” said the statement.
The statement emphasizes that there is no doubt that this terrorist attack was meant to bolster fear in Afghan society.
“Lasting peace in the country, which the parties to the Afghan conflict and the international community have been working hard to achieve of late, runs counter to the interests of terrorists, who want to set roots in Afghanistan, the statement reads, adding that “we believe it is necessary to do everything possible to prevent this from happening.”
Russia called on the Afghan authorities to quickly take measures to ensure the safety of civilians and increase the effectiveness of fighting against terrorist elements in the country, first of all, to destroy the bases of ISIS, an international terrorist organisation.

On October 18, a major terrorist attack took place inside a mosque in Nangarhar province during friday prayers, killing over 70 and wounding more than 30 others.
No group has claimed responsibility yet.
