New Zealand – Christchurch attack – Statement by M. Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs (15 March 2019)


I utterly condemn the despicable attack committed today against two mosques in Christchurch, whose casualty toll – still provisional at this stage – speaks of several dozen killed and wounded.

France extends its condolences to the victims’ families and the New Zealand people and stands alongside New Zealand in this ordeal, which strengthens our shared determination to combat terrorism all over the world.
