Afghan President Ashraf Ghani condemned the Islamic States(IS) claimed attack at a shrine in Pakistan on Thursday that killed at least 75 people and injured 300 others.
In a statement released by the Presidential Palace on Friday, President Ghani said terrorism is the common enemy of all countries and a regional and trans-regional consensus is required to tackle terrorism.
Ghani said he believes that “honesty and determination to fight against terrorism will prevent the insurgents from carrying out terrorist attacks in any country”.
“The Afghan government has always proved its honesty and commitment to maintain peace and stability and to fight against terrorism,” the statement noted.
"Afghanistan has sacrificed since years, and it expects other countries also to prove their honesty in fight against terrorism," the statement added.
Meanwhile, the Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has condemned the attack and offered his condolences to Pakistani people.
"Afghanistan condemns the attack in LalShahbaz Qalandar & offers sympathies to families of victims & people of Pakistan. Must fight terror!," Abdullah wrote on his Twitter.
