PM condemns attack on Canada

Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemned the terrorist attacks in Canada and said that New Delhi and Ottawa would enhance cooperation in the fight against terrorism.

Modi also recalled the December 13, 2001 terrorist strike on Parliament in New Delhi and said that India shared the outrage with Canada as the Canadian Parliament too came under attack on Wednesday.

“I strongly condemn the attacks on the Canadian military personnel in Quebec and Ottawa and the shooting in the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa,” he said.

He said that a Parliament was a “temple of democracy” and held “a special place in the hearts of those who believe in democratic ideals”. “As a nation that has experienced a horrific terrorist attack on its Parliament, we share the sense of outrage and trauma of the people of Canada over the attack on the highest institution of democracy,” said Modi, expressing condolences to Canada for the loss of soldiers and conveying New Delhi’s “solidarity” with Ottawa “at this difficult moment”.
