'Afghanistan  to keep friendship with India at all costs'NEW DELHI: Condemning the attack on the Indian Consulate in Herat province, Afghan ambassador Shaida Mohammad Abdali today said the incident will only “embolden” his country’s determination to keep the friendship with India “at all costs”.

Observing that the pre-dawn assault was an attack on the friendship of India and Afghanistan, he said, “I can tell you very confidently that this attack can only embolden our determination that we will keep this friendship at all costs,” he said.

Replying to a query, Abdali said that there was little doubt that it was a “terrorist” incident but it was too early to determine who was behind it.

“There is no doubt that it is a terrorist incident but technically speaking we have to wait to investigate this incident,” he said.

The Afghan Ambassador to India said he has spoken to the national security force commanders in Afghanistan, who confirmed that they had finished the operation and all the terrorists had been killed.

He said the force was quick to react to the attack and that all the consulate staff were safe.–PTI
