United and strong in difficult times
The Party of European Socialists condemns in the strongest possible terms the bomb attacks in Brussels. The PES president Sergei Stanishev said: “This brutal attacks against civilians are despicable, barbaric and inhumane. They seek to terrorize ordinary people, to alter our lifestyle and to challenge the peaceful coexistence in our societies. They will never achieve that objective. We have to stand more united than ever in this difficult moments. Our thoughts are with the dead, the wounded and their families”. The Party of European Socialists and its member parties stand firmly against terrorism and in favour of freedom, democracy and human rights. The PES extends its condolences to the families of all the victims in this moment of mourning.
