Statement by the Spokesperson on attack on the Jazeera Hotel in Mogadishu, Somalia
The EU expresses its condolences to the victims and families affected by the attack yesterday on the Jazeera Hotel in Mogadishu, Somalia, in which dozens of innocent people died.
Such acts of terrorism will not undermine the willingness to progress on the political process towards a stable and secure country. Those behind such crimes must be swiftly brought to justice.
The EU will continue its support to the people of Somalia and the efforts of Somali Federal institutions aimed at establishing a secure and safe environment so Somalia can move forward to recover from decades of conflict.
