Qassemi in his message sympathized with the Afghan government, people and the bereaved families of the victims.
“We strongly condemn the terrorist attack in Kabul,” Qassemi said.
At least nine people have been killed and 22 others injured in a bomb attack near a Shiite mosque in the Afghan capital, Kabul.
The casualties were caused after an attacker, who had been stopped at a nearby security checkpoint, set off an explosive device he was carrying, said Deputy Interior Ministry Spokesman Nasrat Rahimi.
Rahimi said the assailant apparently sought to target crowds comprising members of Afghanistan’s Shiite Hazara community. They had gathered to commemorate Abdul Ali Mazari, a Hazara political leader killed by the Taliban militant group in 1995.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the deadly assault.
