Kabul: The United Nations mission in Afghanistan and the commander of international forces in the country are condemning Tuesday's Taliban attack on a government security agency in Kabul.
"Today's attack shows the insurgents are unable to meet Afghan forces on the battlefield and must resort to these terrorist attacks," said Resolute Support Commander, Gen. John W Nicholson.
"We strongly condemn the actions of Afghanistan's enemies and remain firmly committed to supporting our Afghan partners and the National Unity Government."
In separate statement the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) condemned the Taliban attack in Kabul.
"This attack shows the devastation caused by the use of explosive devices in urban areas and once more demonstrates complete disregard for the lives of Afghan civilians," said Tadamichi Yamamoto, the Secretary-General's Deputy Special Representative for Afghanistan.
"The use of high explosives in civilian populated areas, in circumstances almost certain to cause immense suffering to civilians, may amount to war crimes," he said.
Fearful of a repeat of the Taliban’s previous brutal reign between 1996 and 2001, Afghans have been staging small, isolated demonstrations in cities including Kabul, Herat and Mazar-i-Sharif
The insurgent group has a lot to do before they can get any recognition for its regime, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said
India also called on the international community to rise above any partisan interests and stand together with the people of Afghanistan in their desire for peace, stability and security in the country.
