“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs voiced its entire solidarity with the Afghan authorities and the Afghan people and sent condolences to the families of the victims, hoping at the same time for the fast recovery of the wounded. MAE reaffirmed Romania’s commitment to continue to support fight against international terrorism, as this was an unacceptable attack to the lives of innocent people,” reads the release.

The attack with a explosives packed ambulance occurred on Saturday in Kabul causing 103 people to die and 235 to suffer injuries, among these being also numerous policemen, the Minister of Interior Wais Barmak made an announcement on Sunday, according to Reuters, AFP and DPA.
