Strongly condemning the terror attack on an army base in northern Afghanistan, India today said that it is a stark reminder of the need to immediately dismantle safe havens sustaining terrorism from outside that country’s borders. 

In a statement, Ministry of External Affairs said that India remained steadfast in its support to Afghanistan in fighting all forms of terrorism.

More than 100 Afghan soldiers were killed and wounded in a coordinated Taliban attack on the army base near the Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif yesterday. 

“The terrorist attack is a stark reminder of the need to immediately dismantle the safe havens and sanctuaries that support and sustain terrorism in Afghanistan from outside its borders,” the MEA said, in an apparent reference to the terror infrastructure in Pakistan. 

It said the government and the people of India extend their deepest condolences and stand with the government and people of Afghanistan at this difficult moment. 

“India remains steadfast in its support to Afghanistan in fighting all forms of terrorism and bringing perpetrators of terrorist violence to justice, wherever they maybe,” the statement said.
