DUBLIN, Ireland, September 12, 2012/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- The Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr. Eamon Gilmore, T.D., has expressed his profound regrets on behalf of the Government and people of Ireland at the death of the US Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, as a result of yesterday's attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi.

“I have learned with great sadness of the death of the US Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and of a number of his colleagues, following yesterday's attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi. I wish to convey my deepest personal condolences and those of the Irish Government and people to the bereaved and to the people of the United States.”

“I also wish to condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi yesterday which led to Ambassador Stevens' death and those of his colleagues. Attacks on diplomatic missions are completely unacceptable and cannot be justified in any terms. I welcome Libyan President Magariaf's condemnation of the incident and strongly urge the Libyan authorities to conduct the most thorough investigation into yesterday's events and to ensure that those responsible are speedily apprehended and brought to justice in a court of law.”

“Ambassador Stevens and his colleagues died on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. Sadly, hatred and extremism continue to blight our world. We must not follow those who take this path. We must stand together against them. Ireland stands with the people of the United States in this moment of grief. We stand with the government of Libya at this time of challenge. We stand with all those in the Arab world who promote peace, democracy, tolerance and human rights in this region at this time of historic change.”
