Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka condoles with Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Theresa May

Your Excellency, esteemed Prime Minister,

It was with shock and deep sorrow that I have received the news about the despicable terrorist attack which occurred yesterday evening in the city of Manchester.

Please, allow me to extend to you and to the families and loved ones of those who perished my most sincere condolences. This cowardly, inhuman attack in Manchester Arena, which has claimed the lives of more than twenty people and caused many injuries, must not imperil our collective commitment to freedom, democracy as well as our way of life.

Dear Prime Minister, let me assure you that the Czech Republic stands alongside the United Kingdom in this difficult moment and that we will continue in our effort to fight together against those who intend to commit such detestable acts.

Yours faithfully,

Bohuslav Sobotka 
Prime Minister of the Czech Republic
