NATO Allies Helping France Respond to Paris Attacks
We express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims. Our thoughts are also with the many who were wounded. We stand in strong solidarity with the government and the people of France in their unwavering determination to deal with the terrorist threat. We are all more than ever determined to counter and defeat the threat of terrorism and extremism. A number of Allies are already working with France on their ongoing operations and investigations in the wake of the attacks.
These attacks are meant to terrify, but they will only strengthen our resolve. Terrorism and extremism can never defeat democracy and our open societies.Statement by the North Atlantic Council in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris, November 16, 2015.
