by NATO Secretary General on Kabul bombing

On behalf of NATO, I wholeheartedly condemn the bombing at the Indian Embassy.  The loss of life and injuries to so many is a tragedy, and a clear attempt to undermine regional relations.  I call on all parties to remain calm in the face of this provocation.  The Alliance remains determined to continue its mission to help bring security and stability to Afghanistan, including against the scourge of terrorism.
