The attack on Kabul University is not an opportunity for the government and the Taliban to score points against each other, US peace envoy said on Tuesday.
At least 22 people were killed while dozens more were wounded after gunmen stormed the university and opened fire.
The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for the attack, but Afghan officials blamed the Taliban for it. The Taliban, in turn, accused the government of supporting IS.
“This barbaric attack is NOT an opportunity for the government and the Taliban to score points against each other. There is a common enemy here,” Khalilzad said on Twitter.
“Deny ISIS or any other terrorist the space to carry out these inhumane acts. Unite for peace, find a path to a ceasefire, and accelerate a political settlement. These steps would be the right response to this unspeakable barbarism,” Khalilzad said.
