Message of Condolence following the Terrorist Attack in London from Prime Minister Abe

Sunday, June 4, 2017

Dear Theresa,

I am greatly shocked by the atrocious terrorist attack occurred at the London Bridge, which is famous throughout the world, and the Borough Market where many citizens spend enjoyable time on weekends.

On behalf of the Japanese government and people, I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to the victims as well as my sympathies to the wounded.

The peaceful weekend of innocent citizens was assaulted by the terrorists. I cannot help but feel strong indignation at this. In this difficult time, I wish to express our heartfelt solidarity with the British people.

At the G7 Summit Meeting in Taormina, Theresa and I, with other G7 leaders, expressed the strong determination to resolutely stand up against terrorism. In close cooperation with the United Kingdom and the international community, Japan will continuously strive to combat terrorism.

Sincerely yours,
Shinzo
