EU urges international community to unite against terrorism

Brussels, Nov 14 (IANS) European Union’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini on Saturday called on the international community to get united in dealing with the threat of terrorism.

She made the remarks ahead of the Syria talks in Vienna, hours after overnight attacks in Paris left 127 people dead.

“It’s another sad day,” an EU statement issued in Brussels quoted Mogherini as saying.

“The countries sitting around the table today have almost all experienced the same pain, the same sorrow, the same shock over the last weeks. Paris again yesterday, Lebanon the day before, Russia and Egypt two weeks ago, Turkey a few weeks ago again.”

“For all the countries here and all the international community, all the people affected by the threat of terrorism, the only possible and effective response is dealing with that in an united way; and dealing united with the conflicts that we have around our region, starting from this terrible war in Syria,” she said.
