FM Condemns London Bombing: "abominable crimes"

Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds has condemned the most recent attempted attacks on London.

She said, ”Even if the attacks cannot be compared to those of July 7th, it’s alarming that terrorists apparently have the capacity and organisation to carry out this type of abominable crimes.”

Freivalds continued to say that the long-term political consequences are hard to judge at this time but that she sees the threat ahead of us as very serious and perhaps greater than was previously believed. She said this underlines the need for continued co-operation in the fight against terrorism and its causes. Freivalds appreciates the British government’s determination and calm in its handling of the situation.
