Mumbai terrorist attacks
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.
