Intl. community slams terrorist attack
    2014-03-04  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    THE international community has strongly condemned the deadly terrorist attack in Kunming, Yunnan Province, and sent condolences to the victims’ families.

    The United Nations Security Council said in a statement Sunday that the 15-nation U.N. body condemned in the strongest terms the terrorist attack Saturday evening in the Kunming train station.

    “The members of the security council extended their deepest sympathy and condolence to the victims and their families who suffered from such a heinous terrorist attack, as well as to the people and the government of the People’s Republic of China,” the statement said.

    “The security council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable regardless of their motivation, wherever and whenever and by whomsoever committed,” the statement said.

    Appalled by the reports of the significant loss of life, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton extended condolences and sympathy to the families who have suffered death and injury. “There is never any justification for such heinous crimes,” Ashton’s spokesman Sebastien Brabant told Xinhua.

    Germany on Sunday also strongly condemned the brutal attack on innocent civilians conducted by a group of knife-wielding militants in the well-known tourist city.

    “This act cannot be justified,” the German Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

    Stressing that the Pakistani people fully understand and share the pain of the people of China, Pakistan said Sunday that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security.

    “We are ready to extend all possible cooperation to China in combating this menace,” Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding “our prayers and thoughts are with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.”

    Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party Sunday also denounced the terrorist attack in Yunnan and sent deep condolences to the Chinese people and their leadership, saying that they believed China would recover from this ordeal and is able “to confront anyone who tries to target the stability of our friend China.”

    The Japanese Government on Monday deplored the deadly terrorist attack, sending condolences to the victims and their families.

    Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters at a news conference that Japan “deplores the indiscriminate mass killing,” offering condolences to the survivors and bereaved families.

    The Australian Government also condemned the mass stabbing, according to a statement by Australian Ambassador to China Frances Adamson.

    “The Australian Government condemns this brutal attack on innocent people and extends its condolences and deepest sympathy to the victims and their families,” the statement said.
