Statement by President Jean-Claude Juncker following the attacks on Nice (15/07/2016)

Ulaanbaatar, 15 July 2016

I am deeply shocked and distressed by the horrible ordeal that has struck the beautiful town of Nice on this national holiday.

I would like to express my greatest solidarity with the victims, their families and all the French nationals grieving after this cowardly, heinous act of terror.

France can count on the European Commission to continue supporting it and the other members of the European Union in the fight against terrorism inside and outside our Union. Our determination will only be matched by our unity.
