Ulaanbaatar, July 15 (MTI) – The Bastille Day terrorist attack in Nice confirms the need to step up joint efforts to fight terrorism, the Hungarian foreign minister said on Friday.
Hungary’s foreign ministry strongly condemns the attack, Péter Szijjártó told MTI on the sidelines of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) summit in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
Hungary is making every effort to contribute to the international fight against terrorism, Szijjártó said, adding that he stated Hungary’s support for France to the French delegation attending ASEM.
Szijjártó confirmed that the foreign ministry so far knows only of one Hungarian woman who was slightly injured in the attack but said the ministry’s consular service is constantly monitoring the situation in France.
At least 84 people were killed and 18 critically wounded in Nice on Thursday evening after a truck drove into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day.
