The Secretary General condemns terrorist attacks in India

The Secretary General of NATO, Mr. Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said today:

I condemn in the strongest possible terms the mindless and indiscriminate terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Attacking innocent people, tourists, and patients in hospitals is despicable and cowardly. On behalf of the Alliance I am relaying the sincerest words of solidarity and sympathy to the Indian authorities, to Indian people, and especially families of the victims. NATO, as part of the international community, is determined to spare no effort to fight the scourge of terrorism which should have no place in the XXIst century.
