Iohannis: The ample March in Paris , not only a condemnation of the attack over the French magazine, but also of the anti-Semitism
The participation in the Solidarity March to be held on Sunday in Paris is ‘a strong signal of Romania’s desire for involvement in the fight against terrorism and extremism of any kind,’ on Saturday said president Klaus Iohannis, in a release to Agerpres.
‘Facing the barbarian attacks which took place in France, Europe and the entire free world show their unity and solidarity. Our thoughts and hearts were next to the French citizens from the very beginning of these attacks. The presence, next to other heads of state and government in Paris will give a strong signal of Romania’s desire of involvement in the fight against terrorism and extremism of any kind,’ the document also reads.
President Klaus Iohannis added that the ample demonstration which is to take place in Paris is not only a condemnation of the attack over the French magazine, but also of the anti-Semitism.
‘By participating in this march against hatred and violence, we condemn not only the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, but the anti-Semitism that led yesterday to other murders in a Jewish shop in Paris, too,’ the head of state said.
