Statement of Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka on the terrorist attack in Tunis

I would like to express my sincere condolences to close ones of the victims of yesterday’s attack in Tunis. The terrorist act committed in the capital of Tunisia is an inhuman and unjustifiable attack and I deplore it on behalf of the Czech Republic in the strongest possible terms. In recent years Tunisia has become an inspiration for many in the region thanks to the resolve with which it followed the path of stability, democracy and reforms. I believe that Tunisia's determination will not be weakened by yesterday's terrorist act. This tragic event reminds us that international terrorism is an imminent threat affecting also us in Europe. Therefore, the Czech Republic will continuously participate in international cooperation in the struggle against terrorism.

Bohuslav Sobotka, Prime Minister of the Czech Republic
