Marking the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to Victims of Terrorism, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirmed its strong condemnation of terrorism in all its forms, and stressed the importance of remaining united against all those who seek to sow the seeds of division and hatred in our societies.
The United Nations published on Sunday a touching letter from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, to mark this occasion.
“The International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to Victims of Terrorism is a day to reflect on what they have suffered, to recognize it and also to act, we reflect on the pain and suffering of those who have lost loved ones; we resolve to listen to them and learn from them,” Guterres said in his message.
“We are committed to supporting survivors who have been scarred by heinous terrorist acts, by raising their voices, protecting their rights and seeking justice, and by mobilizing member states to provide the legal, medical, psychosocial or financial support they need to heal their wounds and live in dignity,” he added.
“On this International Day and every day, let’s make sure that victims and survivors are always listened to and never forgotten. Let’s do everything we can to prevent more victims in the future,” he said.
