The attack occurred near a mosque on the base in Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital of Balkh province, as soldiers were leaving Friday prayers, said army spokesman Nasratullah Jamshidi.
Dozens of people have been killed by the Taliban in an attack on a military base in Afghanistan, US officials have said.
Another Afghan official, speaking on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak publicly, said more than 20 soldiers had been killed and 50 wounded.
The attack comes a month after the ISIS Khorasan faction carried out a deadly terror attack, killing at least 38 wounded soldiers in an hospital in Kabul.
Waziri said five attackers were killed in the battle, including one wearing a suicide vest who was shot by soldiers before he could trigger his explosives.
Two years ago, Taliban fighters shocked US and Afghan commanders in Kabul by briefly capturing Mazar-e-Sharif, Balkh's provincial capital and the country's third-largest city.
