Statement by Secretary of State John Kerry on the American University of Afghanistan Attack

The United States condemns in the strongest terms the attack on the American University in Kabul, an institution created with the sole purpose to help educate and enlighten the future leaders of Afghanistan. On behalf of the American people, I extend my heartfelt condolences to the friends and families of those who were killed and injured. I know I join countless others around the world in saying that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

This was a cowardly assault on talented and motivated scholars – students and faculty alike – dedicated to a better and more prosperous future for Afghanistan, as well as the police and security staff who help make that future possible. Though it took and altered innocent lives, this attack will ultimately fail to change that path or deter the cause of peace in that country.

The American University of Afghanistan will continue to serve as a beacon of hope for all Afghans. And the United States, our allies and partners, will continue to stand with them as they confront the threat of terrorism, strive for peace, and educate themselves and their children. Now, as before, we affirm our dedication to those goals and to an enduring and vibrant partnership with the government – and the citizens – of Afghanistan.

Lifelong educator and community college champion, Dr. Jill Biden, sent a powerful message in her keynote address earlier this month at the seventh annual EducationUSA Forum that “education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom." The U.S. Department of State’s EducationUSA network reaches millions of international students each year and provides accurate, current, and comprehensive information about opportunities to achieve their dreams of studying in the United States.

At this year’s EducationUSA Forum, 575 U.S. higher education community representatives, 60 EducationUSA education experts from around the world, and government officials convened to share best practices on how to recruit, retain, engage, and support international students on American campuses. Participants discussed traditional and virtual recruiting strategies, promoting access through digital resources, emerging trends in international student mobility, community college outreach, and more: http://go.usa.gov/xDv73.

It is shocking to note that almost half of the world’s countries have laws and policies that criminalize blasphemy, apostasy, conversion, or so-called “defamation of religion.” These “crimes” are sometimes punishable by death, as is the case in 12 countries, or life imprisonment. The impact of such laws, which tend to be vague and poorly defined, tends to drastically limit the exercise of freedom of religion and expression. They all too often lead to the persecution of members of minority groups: http://go.usa.gov/xD7QP.

The United States is deeply concerned by the death of Gambian opposition member Ibrima Solo Krummah, who reportedly died on August 20 while in government custody. We remain troubled by reports of the Gambian government’s continued mistreatment of detained opposition figures, as evidenced by recent deaths and allegations of torture. http://go.usa.gov/xDmgG
