They voice regret that this was the second such attack on the Indian diplomatic mission in Kabul in the past two years.
Earlier in the day, Ban also strongly condemned "the senseless attack that took place in Kabul today, in the vicinity of the Indian Embassy and the Afghan Ministry of the Interior."
Taliban militants said in an online statement that one of their "martyrs" had carried out the attack in the heavily fortified central diplomatic area, and said the Indian embassy "was the main target."
