H.E. Dr. Zalmay Rasoul, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan strongly condemned terrorist attacks in Oslo and the island of Utoeya.
I was deeply saddened and shocked by the tragic news of the terrorist attacks in Oslo and on the island of Utoeya which claimed so many lives and also caused huge financial losses.
The people of Afghanistan will always appreciate the generous assistance of Norway in restoring peace, stability and the rehabilitation of security in Afghanistan against terrorism.
Lastly, I extend my heartfelt sympathy to the people of Norway. My prayers and thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by the dreadful atrocity.
