Statement on the Paris attacks
"Again, a night of terror in Paris, leaving the people of France in suffering and mourning, and the world in shock. The loss of loved ones we will face with grief and prayers. Unprecedented terror we will face with unprecedented determination to stand together and uphold our values and principles. My thoughts are with the families of the victims and with President Hollande and all the French people who for the second time this year have to face such a tragedy. The seeds of fear, terror and hate will not grow where liberté, égalité, fraternité thrive.", PES President, Sergei Stanishev.
