Brussels Attacks Reinforces Need For Greater Int’l Cooperation Against Terror – Buhari


SAN FRANCISCO, March 22, (THEWILL) – President Muhammadu Buhari has joined leaders across Europe and the rest of the world in condemning the atrocious terrorist attacks on the Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek Metro Station in Brussels earlier on Tuesday.

While commiserating with Prime Minister Charles Michel and Belgians over the loss of over 30 lives in the attacks, Buhari assured them that having suffered the horror and anguish of incessant terrorist attacks over several years, Nigeria stands in full solidarity with their country on this day of national pain and trauma.

He expressed conviction, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, that the appalling attack on Brussels reinforces the need for greater international cooperation to effectively confront and destroy global terrorism and its perpetrators.

The Nigerian leader promised the global community that Nigeria will, under his leadership, continue to work with other countries of the world to ensure that terrorism never triumphs over free, peaceful and law-abiding nations and people of the world.

The statement further wished the over 100 persons injured in the attacks a speedy recovery.
