EU Condemns Kabul Insider Attack

(Last Updated On: August 6, 2014)


The European Union Special Representative, Franz-Michael Melbin, has condemned yesterday’s attack on Afghan and international troops in west of Kabul.

A man dressed in Afghan Army uniform opened fire on NATO troops in Afghan National Military Academy of Kabul, killing a senior US general and wounding 15 others, including Afghan and international forces.

The act was strongly condemned by many people including President Karzai, ISAF troops and EU representative to Afghanistan.

“I offer my sympathy and deepest condolence to the family, friends and colleagues of the killed ISAF service members and hope for the full recovery of the many wounded service men,” said Franz-Michael Melbin, EU special envoy.

“The security provided by troops from the Afghan National Security Forces and ISAF is essential to the lives of millions of ordinary Afghans. Providing security is a difficult and dangerous job. We pay respect to our service men, who undertake daily risks in the interest of Afghan people and future of this country.”
