The European Union Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) held a moment of silence in memory of the victims of the horrible tragedy in Nice at its sitting today.

The members of the Riigikogu send their condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims and to the people of France after the attack against innocent and peaceful people on the National Day of France.

“In our thoughts, we are with the people of France and the victims who suffered in the attack. The tragic events in Nice show once again that we have to stand firmly together against terrorist attacks and commit ourselves to resolving the reasons behind them,” the European Union Affairs Committee said in its statement.

The attack took place on the day France was celebrating its National Day, Bastille Day, in the spirit of its national motto “Liberty, Fraternity, Equality”.

Deputy Chairman of the European Union Affairs Committee Jaak Madison, who chaired today’s sitting, once again emphasised the importance of international cooperation in the fight against terrorism.
