On 1 September 2004 the School Number One in Beslan, Russia, was attacked by terrorists. On today’s fifteenth anniversary we remember the more than 300 victims, including 186 children, who died during the three-day siege.
We stand in solidarity with and support of those who have lost their loved ones. There is no place for terrorism anywhere in the world
We had a very good and intense meeting both yesterday afternoon and this morning. I would like to thank Pekka [Haavisto, Foreign Minister of Finland] for the wonderful hospitality, but also for the very substantial contribution that the Finnish Presidency - and you personally - have given to the preparation of this Gymnich.
