The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic is appalled by the brutal attacks on shoppers and staff at the Westgate shopping centre in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, resulting in dozens of dead and hundreds of injured among innocent people.
The Czech Republic strongly condemns the barbaric act of the al-Shabab terrorist organisation, as well as any form of terrorism and extremism. In this respect, it highly praises the effort of the Republic of Kenya to ensure peace and stability in the whole region of the Horn of Africa.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic would like to express its deepest sympathy to those who lost their loved ones. The Czech Republic supports international cooperation in fighting and preventing terrorism in the world.
