Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said the country is concerned over the activity of the Islamic State terrorist group in Afghanistan.

The spokeswoman asked all authorities to ensure the security of the Russian embassy in the country.

“We are concerned about the growing activity of the ISIS terrorist group in Afghanistan. Recently, ISIS members have carried out a major terrorist attack near a mosque in the center of Kabul, as a result, 20 civilians were killed, more than 30 were injured,” Zakharova told a press briefing as quoted by The World News.

“We note with particular concern the activities of ISIS in the area of the Russian embassy in Kabul. On October 4, five militants of this terrorist group were eliminated there. We call on the Afghan authorities to take additional measures to ensure the security of the Russian diplomatic mission as well as the Russian citizens in Afghanistan,” Zakharova added.
