Statement by the French Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs, Jean-Yves Le Drian, on the despicable terror attack perpetrated today in Jammu & Kashmir.

Paris, 14 February 2019

I most firmly condemn the heinous attack just perpetrated in India. My thoughts go out to the families of the fallen soldiers and my deepest solidarity to the Indian government and people. France has always been and always will be by India’s side in the fight against terrorism in all its forms.

I call on every State to fight effectively against terrorist networks and their financing channels and to prevent cross-border movements of terrorist groups, such as the Jaish-e-Mohammed, which has claimed responsibility for this attack.
