On the terrorist attack in Dhaka: Statement by the High Representative/Vice-President, Federica Mogherini
EU News 239/2016
Last night's terrorist attack in Dhaka, killing and wounding Bangladeshi citizens and foreign nationals, including several Europeans, is a direct challenge to our global community. Terrorism is a global threat, and as the international community we have to tackle it all together.
Our first thoughts and deepest condolences go to all the victims and injured and their families, including those law enforcement officers who bravely lost their lives while seeking to thwart this awful crime.
In this dark hour, we stand in solidarity with the people and the government of Bangladesh, as well as with the authorities and populations of countries who have also suffered in this attack.
I am in contact with the Italian Foreign Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, to put the Delegation of the European Union in Bangladesh at full disposal of the Italian authorities. The Delegation is ready to assist the Embassy
