"Under any circumstances, it cannot be justified to carry out such a horrible terror act against innocent people during the period of the holy month of Ramadan in pursuit of peace and mercy and it is an anti-culture and inhumane deed," the foreign ministry said.

"The government will continue joining the international community's efforts to stabilize and rebuild Afghanistan so as to make peace take root and eradicate terrorism in the country," it added.
