Brussels, 7 January 2015
I am shocked by the appalling attack that took place this morning in Paris against Charlie Hebdo.
The European Union stands side by side with France after this terrible act. It is a brutal attack against our fundamental values, against freedom of expression which is a pillar of our democracy.
The fight against terrorism in all its forms must continue unabated.
On behalf of the European Union and myself I extend my deepest condolences to the families and relatives of the victims and express my solidarity with the French authorities and the French people.
