President reacts to terrorist incident at Westminster

“I strongly deplore today’s serious terrorist incident at Westminster, the home of British democracy, which comes exactly a year after the Brussels attacks,” said Pedro Agramunt, the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

“My thoughts are with the families of the victims, the police and the men and women of the emergency services, who responded swiftly and resolutely,” he said.

“Whoever carried out this attack, they will fail in their aim of creating division or fear – democracy will never bend to terror.”
