China on Friday condemned the deadly attacks by Islamic State suicide bombers outside Kabul airport, saying Afghanistan still faces a “complex and severe” security situation as the United States withdraws.
Two blasts killed at least 85 people including 13 US soldiers near the airport on Thursday, ripping through crowds desperate to flee Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. The Islamic State group said it carried out the attacks.
The blasts show “the security situation in Afghanistan is still complex and severe”, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters on Friday.
