    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that the "enemies" of Afghanistan will not succeed in their attempts to destroy the country and divide the Afghan people, who are resilient and committed to establishing peace and stability.

    "The US strongly condemns today's barbaric attack at a cultural and social centre in Kabul, Afghanistan, and offers its deepest condolences to the victims and their families," she said.

    She said, "The US stands firmly with the government and people of Afghanistan and will work closely with the National Unity Government to bring the perpetrators of this heinous attack to justice.” The UN Security Council also condemned "the heinous and cowardly" terrorist attack and underlined the need to bring "perpetrators, organisers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice."

    The UNSC urged all states to cooperate actively with the Afghanistan government and all other relevant authorities in this regard. Expressing solidarity with the people and the government of Afghanistan, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the world body firmly believes that a peace process is the only path to ensure Afghanistan’s stability. An Islamic State suicide bomber struck a Shiite cultural center in Kabul yesterday, killing at least 41 people and underscoring the extremist group's growing reach in Afghanistan.
