The European Union mourns the
victims of today's terrorist attacks in Brussels. It was an attack on our
open democratic society.
Our common European
institutions are hosted in Brussels, thanks to the generosity of the
government of Belgium and the Belgian people. The European Union and its
Member States stand firm with Belgium in solidarity and are determined to
face this threat together with all necessary means.
This latest attack only
strengthens our resolve to defend the European values and tolerance from the
attacks of the intolerant. We will be united and firm in the fight against
hatred, violent extremism and terrorism.
