Islamabad: Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar on Sunday condemned the series of Taliban attacks in Afghanistan and said Islamabad supports stability in the war-shattered neighbouring country.
"Pakistan strongly condemns terrorism in all forms and has consistently encouraged dialogue to resolve issues in Afghanistan," she told reporters in Lahore.
Taliban fighters launched coordinated attacks in several parts of Afghanistan`s capital Kabul and several other cities.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attacks and said that Taliban suicide bombers launched attacks on the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) forces` command in Kabul, parliament and across the diplomatic area, Xinhua reported.
Khar said that Pakistan stood in solidarity with all Afghan brothers and sisters suffering the continuous violence and instability in the country.
She said soon after the Kabul attacks she contacted Pakistan`s ambassador in Kabul and sought information about the developments.
The minister said a delegation of Pakistani lawmakers was currently in Kabul. All team members had now shifted to the Pakistani embassy and were safe.
