Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan strongly condemns another terrorist act committed on October 15, 2021 in a mosque in Kandahar province, which led to numerous casualties.

Such inhuman attacks provoke an escalation of tensions and impede the establishment of long-term peace in Afghanistan.

The Government of Uzbekistan expresses its sincere condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims, and also wishes the victims a speedy recovery.
