Foreign Secretary condemns attack on hotel in Kabul

Foreign Secretary William Hague condemns attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Speaking today, the Foreign Secretary said:

“The United Kingdom condemns the attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul in the strongest terms. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims of this terrible crime. Acts of terrorism such as this not only show contempt for human life but also seek to undermine public confidence in the progress that has been made in Afghanistan. We should not, and the Afghan people should not, let incidents such as these shake our joint resolve to build a safer and more secure Afghanistan.”
