SECRETARY-GENERAL DEPLORES TERRORIST INCIDENTS IN GREAT BRITAIN

 


The following statement was issued yesterday by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:


The Secretary-General deplores the terrorist attack that took place yesterday at Glasgow airport in Great Britain, as well as the attempt to explode car bombs in London on Friday.


He reiterates that no cause or belief can justify such acts of terrorism.


The Secretary-General expresses his strong support for the Government and the people of Great Britain at this time of heightened security threats in the country.


He looks forward to his visit to London next week, when he will have the opportunity to meet with Prime Minister Gordon Brown to discuss, among other issues, how the international community can best implement the global strategy against terrorism adopted last year by the General Assembly.
