WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers, Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, released the following statement regarding recent deadly attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan.
“I strongly condemn the cowardly attacks in Kabul – another tragic reminder that we must remain ever vigilant in our quest to end violent extremism. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have suffered at the hands of these terrorists, and also with those who will work to rebuild the Afghan capital in the coming weeks and months. Protecting our diplomats and their families abroad is one of our chief responsibilities, and we remain committed to providing robust resources for embassy security through the appropriations process.”
