I am deeply saddened to learn of the attacks and the tragic loss of lives in Brussels today.
These attacks strike at the fundamental right of all to live in peace. These actions must not undermine the will of all Europeans to live and work together.
I wish to express my sincerest condolences to the families of all those bereaved and affected by today’s tragedies. All of our thoughts are with the people of Brussels at this time of tragedy.
I have conveyed to King Philippe today the sympathy of the Irish people at this most difficult time.
