Statement of the MFA on the Terrorist Attack in Paris

 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic categorically condemns the terrorist attack directed against the staff of the Charlie Hebdo magazine and against police officers in Paris on 7 January 2015.

The unacceptable actions of the attackers testify to their disrespect for human life as well as to their hostile attitude to the freedom of speech, one of the values advocated by the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic shares with France the conviction that it is vital to combat terrorism in all its forms.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic conveys sincere sympathy to the families of the victims as well as best wishes for a speedy recovery of those injured, and expresses hope that the attackers will soon be traced down and arrested.
