Below is the text of the statement:
We condemn, in strongest terms, the terrorist attack against cilivians in the southern city of Nice, as they gathered to celebrate French National Day. Last night’s attack, one of a series of terror attacks against France in recent years, claimed the lives of dozens of innocent people.
Kurdistan Regional Government stands in solidarity with the people and leadership of France and the families of the victims, and they have our full support.
Nice terrorist attack is another reminder that the international community is facing a major challenge and responsibility to contain and eliminate terrorism. Terrorists commit heinous crimes anywhere and at anytime, if there is a chance to do so. Repeated terrorist attacks in France and other countries highlight the need to intensify international coordination and cooperation to swiftly defeat terrorism, and protect the world and humanity from the threat of terror.
Again, we stand in solidarity with the people and leadership of France and express our sympathy and condolences to the victims’ families and loved ones.
