Condolences of Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka to German Chancellor Angela Merkel in connection with the attack in Munich

Your Excellency,

I was deeply touched and shocked when I learned about the terrible event at a Munich shopping centre last night. I strongly deplore this murderous attack. We must not be threatened by those who try to spread fear and hatred by attacking innocent people. We must closely cooperate throughout Europe to defeat the terrorists and fanatics and to secure peace and safety for our citizens. We stand by your side in solidarity and compassion.

Please convey my deepest condolences to the families of those, who were killed and injured,  on behalf of myself and the Government of the Czech Republic.

Respectfully yours,

Bohuslav Sobotka
Prime Minister of the Czech Republic
