France has condemned a suicide bomb attack outside NATO's Afghanistan military headquarters in Kabul, which killed seven and wounded 91.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the car bomb attack, which happened on Saturday, five days before Afghanistan's presidential elections.

"France condemns in the strongest possible terms today's attack in Kabul near the headquarters of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF)," the foreign ministry said on Saturday in a statement quoted by the AFP.

The statement said France wanted to convey "to the population and Afghan authorities its support and determination to remain committed alongside them to contributing towards the stabilization and reconstruction of Afghanistan", and "hoped the Afghan people will be able to express themselves in a free and democratic manner" in Thursday's vote.

About 2,900 French soldiers are in Afghanistan serving in the international alliance.
