U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday condemned "in the strongest possible terms" the attack on UN Assistance Missions in Afghanistan, White House said in a statement.

Obama offered his "deepest condolences" to those injured and killed, according to the statement.

He said the brave men and women of the United Nations undertake their work in support of the Afghan people, and their work is essential to building of a stronger Afghanistan.

Obama urged all parties to reject violence and resolve differences through dialogue.

Seven UN workers were killed and another two injured on Friday in northern Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif following a protest demonstration against the reported burning of Muslim holy book Quran in the United States a couple of days ago.
