Islamabad: The Pakistan government on Saturday strongly condemned the bomb attack carried out in Kabul, describing it as the handiwork of the "enemies of peace and stability" in the region.

At least six people were killed on Saturday when a suicide bomber blew himself up near NATO headquarters in the Afghan capital.

A statement issued by Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam Khan described the attack as a "cowardly act".

"This cowardly act is the work of the enemies of peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region. The perpetrators of such terrorist attacks should know that they will not dent the resolve of the people to live in a peaceful and secure environment," it said.
"Pakistan would like to reassure the people and the government of Afghanistan of its full support and cooperation in their efforts to defeat terrorism in the country. We convey our deepest condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the bomb attack," the statement said.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the target was a US intelligence facility nearby.
