Statement by Alain Juppé, Ministre d’Etat, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs

Paris, July 22, 2011

I was deeply shocked to hear of the bomb attack in Oslo which hit the offices of the Norwegian Prime Minister, as well as the shooting that took place during a political gathering northwest of the Norwegian capital.

France utterly condemns these acts of savage, indiscriminate violence, carried out in a friendly country.

On behalf of the French government, I’d like to express my complete solidarity with the Norwegian authorities, my condolences to the victims’ families and my full sympathy with those wounded in the attacks./.
