SEOUL, July 25 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's foreign ministry on Monday denounced a deadly terrorist attack in Kabul over the weekend, vowing to join the international community's efforts to fight terrorism.

A suicide bombing left about 80 people dead and 230 others wounded in the Afghan capital Saturday during a peaceful demonstration by a minority group.

South Korea expresses "deep shocks and concerns" over the terrorist attack and "strongly denounces it," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

The ministry also extended its condolences to the victims and their families, as well as the Afghan people and government, it said.

"Terrorism is a criminal act against civilization and humanity that cannot be justified under any circumstances," the ministry said. "Our government is firm on its stance that it should be eradicated, and we will continue to join the international efforts to root out terrorism."
