240, 15 July 2014
have learned with sorrow that according to initial reports 89 people lost their
lives and at least 40 people were wounded in the suicide attack perpetrated
with a bomb-laden vehicle in a crowded marketplace in the Orgun District of
Afghanistan's Paktika Province today (15 July).
terrorist acts are aimed at discouraging the people of Afghanistan who showed
their belief in a stable and prosperous future in the elections, which are the
most fundamental manifestation of national will, and who resolutely went to
polls in the face of extremist currents and violence. We are fully convinced
that such acts will not reach their goals. The people of Afghanistan have
proved that they can overcome all obstacles to live in peace.
wish God's mercy upon those who lost their lives in this attack aimed at
disturbing the historical process that Afghanistan is going through, convey our
condolences to their families and hope for a speedy recovery of the wounded.
