The Security Council underlined the need in the statement to hold perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these acts of terrorism accountable and bring them to justice, and urged all states to combat threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts.

Describing the attacks as "heinous and cowardly," the members of the Security Council condemned the attacks targeting a medical center for midwives and a government building in Jalalabad, capital of eastern Nangarhar province, as well as the Khawaja Hassan mosque in Gardez, capital of eastern Paktia province, leaving at least 48 people killed and numerous wounded.
