“Once again we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians,” said U.S. President Barack Obama. “We stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance that the government and the people of France need.”
“Those who think that they can terrorize the people of France or the values that they stand for are wrong,” Obama said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin sent his deep condolences to Hollande and all the people of France following the “horrible terrorist attacks in Paris,” the Kremlin said in a statement.
“Russia strongly condemns this inhumane killing and is ready to provide any and all assistance to investigate these terrorist crimes.”
British Prime Minister David Cameron said, “I am shocked by events in Paris tonight. Our thoughts and prayers are with the French people. We will do whatever we can to help.”
“I am confident the authorities and the French people will overcome this new trial,” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said.
European Council President Donald Tusk said he was following events “with horror.”
