Catherin Ashton, EU High Representative

"I was deeply saddened by the death of a Danish member of the EU Police Mission in Afghanistan and a British close protection team member working for the mission, in the terrorist attack that targeted a restaurant in Kabul last night.

My deepest sympathy goes to the families and friends of our colleagues, as well as to the
families and loved ones of the other innocent victims of this terrible attack.

I condemn in the strongest possible terms this appalling and unjustifiable violence. The perpetrators must be brought to justice.

The European Union is determined to continue its support for the Afghan people."
