Paris, November 6, 2007
France has learned with horror of the attack perpetrated today in northern Afghanistan which targeted an Afghan parliamentary delegation, several of whose members lost their lives, and caused many deaths among the general public, including children.

She firmly condemns this intolerable attack against the Afghan national representation and, through it, against the values of democracy.

France extends her condolences to the families and loved-ones of the victims of this heinous act and to the Afghan President, government, members of the Afghan Parliament and authorities of the town of Pol-e Khomri and Baghlan province.

In these tragic circumstances, she wants to assure the Afghan people of her solidarity in their battle for a free Afghanistan to which peace has been restored./.
