The European Union mourns the victims of today's terrorist attacks in Brussels. It was an attack on our open democratic society.

This latest attack only strengthens our resolve to defend European values and tolerance from the attacks of the intolerant. We will be united and firm in the fight against hatred, violent extremism and terrorism.
