PACE President condemns terrorist attack in Vienna

PACE President Rik Daems strongly condemned yesterday’s terrorist attack in Vienna and on behalf of the Assembly expressed his deepest condolences to the families of the victims, the authorities and the people of Austria.

“Yesterday’s attack in Austria, as the recent ones in France, are attacks against all Europeans and against the values that form the foundations of our societies, democracy, human rights, rule of law and tolerance.

Against hate and barbarism, we must stand firm in the fight against terrorism, making our institutions stronger, upholding the values that unite us, and stepping up our co-operation, on the basis of our legal standards”, he concluded.
