Statement by the Prime Minister in connection with the terrorist attack in New Zealand


”A horrific terrorist attack has been carried out targeting people at Friday afternoon prayers in Christchurch, New Zealand. This is a heinous attack directed at an open society, the aim of which is to create fear and division. It is in such difficult times as these that community is the most important. I would like to express my solidarity with New Zealand and show that we are on their side. My thoughts go to the victims, their families and loved ones,” says Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.
