Kabulinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah strongly condemned a terrorist attack on the Atatürk International Airport in Istanbul, stressing an end to such atrocities in Turkey, Afghanistaninfo-icon and in the worldinfo-icon at large.

“On behalf of the government and people of Afghanistan, I condole with friends and families of the victims, the government and people of Turkey,” the CEO said in a statement from his office on Wednesday.

The attack on the Atatürk International Airport was a terrorist act and thus there was need to encourage resolute support and effective combat at the regional and global level to tackle the challenge, he said.

Terrorism, extremism and radicalism were the three main components that challenged the world today, he noted. The world must come together to fight against these ideologies and phenomena, the statement said.

“For the wellbeing of humanity and living in peace, the world must uproot terrorism. Its roots must be taken out wherever they are. Plans for growth, finance and investment on terrorism must be degraded and replaced by ideologies of invest on peace, solidarity and tolerance.

Terror and extremism were no longer the problems of Afghanistan and few other countries only but of the entire world, which needed larger-scale, well-coordinated and well-thought efforts to fight the scourge.

“Afghans as victims of violence, extremism and terror -- financed and imported from outside Afghanistan -- feel and share the pain of the people of Republic of Turkey,” the CEO concluded.
