We are deeply shaken by the fact that Sweden has been the victim of such an act of terrorism.

Our neighbour is wholeheartedly committed to human rights, peace and justice.

We are all the more outraged given the images coming from the heart of Stockholm.

We share the anguish of Swedish women and men, and in our thoughts we are with them, the victims, their families and friends. In these difficult hours, we stand alongside our Swedish friends.
