Press release 11/2016
22 March 2016  

Today, we have witnessed another terrorist attack in the heart of Europe. The attacks in Brussels are a continuum of the attacks in Paris, as well as of other terrorist acts such as the suicide attack in Istanbul last Saturday, and the terror Isil is spreading in Syria and Iraq. Finland unequivocally condemns all forms of terrorism. On behalf of the people of Finland, I express my deepest sympathy for the families of the victims and for the people of Belgium.
