HE Manuel Valls

Prime Minister of the Republic of France


I am deeply shocked and saddened by the unprecedented and dastardly terrorist attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015 which resulted in the loss of a large number of innocent lives and injury and trauma to many more.

I wish to convey my deepest condolences to the bereaved families.

Having suffered due to terrorism for many decades, Sri Lanka unequivocally condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. Attacks of this nature clearly indicate the urgent need for concerted measures by the global community to combat terrorism and extremism.

The Government and People of Sri Lanka stand in solidarity with the Government and People of France during this time of tragic loss and suffering.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Ranil Wickremesinghe

Prime Minister
