Speech
Prime Minister the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller.

“Jamaica joins all civilized, peace-loving peoples around the world in condemning the heartless and barbaric terrorist attacks perpetrated on the night of 13th November 2015 against the nation and people of France.

We are heartbroken that the cowardly acts of terror appeared to target the youth of the city of Paris and have, in the process, claimed the lives of over 120 innocent men, women and children and left numerous others wounded.

We reiterate our utter condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and renew our commitment to fighting this scourge in cooperation with the international community and in defence of the universal values of life, liberty and peace for which Jamaica stands as a nation.

We pledge our solidarity and support in concert with the global peace-loving community to root out and destroy the acts of evil that those who hate our way of life and values would unleash upon us.

We stand in solidarity with the Government and people of France and extend our deepest sympathy to the bereaved families.”
