Delegation to Kenya
The European Union Delegation issues the following statement in agreement with the EU Heads of Mission in Kenya
Following the lethal attack by the terrorist group Al-Shabaab against a Kenya Defence Force AMISOM location in Somalia, the European Union Heads of Mission in Nairobi expressed their condolences to the families and relatives of the victims of this terrible incident.
In order to show solidarity with Kenya, the European Union attended a special function today organized by the Government of Kenya at the Kenya Defence Force Hospital. The European Union stands alongside Kenya and the victims of terrorism in these difficult times.
Acts like these will not deter our efforts, and the EU will continue to work with the Kenyan authorities in our common fight against terrorism.
