Bomb attack not to lessen resolve to support Afghan people: UK


UK Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt while strongly condemning attack on British Council building in Kabul has said this attack, against people working to help build a better future for Afghanistan, will not lessen the UK’s resolve to support the Afghan people.
In a statement he said “I condemn this despicable attack on the British Council building in Kabul earlier today. My thoughts are with those killed and injured and their families and friends, including locals working to protect the British Council building. It is a sad fact that once again an attack aimed at the international community has killed Afghans.
He further stated “I can confirm that all British nationals affected are now safe. It is due to the presence of mind of the staff involved and our good security measures that no British nationals were hurt.
