President Mohamud condemns Brussels terror attacks
The President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, HE Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, condemned the Daesh-perpetrated attacks in Brussels today.
“We join the world in condemning the brutal attacks of civilians in Brussels. We grieve with those who have lost loved ones. We pray for the families affected. Our thoughts are with the Belgium government as it seeks to provide support to its people.
“Daesh murdered more than innocent people today. It also killed any illusions that it is intent on doing anything other than wreaking havoc and destruction across the world. We condemn its barbaric acts of terrorism. Somalia stands by to offer any support needed,” the President said.
The President added that terrorism is a global threat, requiring collective responsibility, adding that Somalia — as it is a country hit by terror acts — continues to work closely with the international community to eradicate extremist groups.
