The White House has condemned the Taliban attack in Kabul and urged the insurgent group to choose the "pathway of peace."

In Tuesday's attack, militants stormed an Afghan government security agency with a suicide car bomb and gunfire, killing 28 people and wounding hundreds in a sign of the insurgency's continued strength.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says the United States remains "committed to supporting the Afghan people and their government."

He says the U.S. also calls "on the Taliban to pursue a pathway of peace instead of continuing a military campaign responsible for the senseless death of Afghan civilians."

Earnest added that U.S. supports the Afghan security forces as they work to promote peace and stability in the region and as both sides counter the "threat of terrorism that affects all of us."
