Letter from M. Bernard Kouchner, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, to Mr Pranab Mukherjee, Indian Minister of External Affairs

Paris, November 27, 2008


As you know, I made a point of already expressing yesterday evening my horror and outrage at the tragic news of the wave of attacks which has just dealt your country a cruel blow. France utterly condemns these cowardly, barbaric acts which show us just how relentlessly the battle against terrorism must be waged.

At this particularly difficult time, I wish to extend to you and the Indian people the French people’s solidarity and my most sincere condolences. I ask you to convey these especially to the bereaved, expressing to them my profound sadness. I remain at your disposal for any help France can give you at this difficult time.

Rest assured that France feels totally at one with India in this terrible ordeal.

(complimentary close)./.
