SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

Dr Man­mo­han Singh has ex­pressed shock over the West­gate Mall ter­ror at­tack in Nairobi. In a mes­sage to Pres­i­dent Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, Prime Min­is­ter said the in­ci­dent is a re­minder of the chal­lenge posed by ter­ror­ism and called for a sus­tained re­sponse from the global com­mu­nity and as­sured Kenya that In­dia stands ready to as­sist the coun­try in this hour of grief.

The Prime Min­is­ter said: “I was deeply shocked and saddened by the bru­tal ter­ror at­tack yes­ter­day on the West­gate Mall in Nairobi. This in­ci­dent is a stark re­minder that the per­sist­ing men­ace of ter­ror­ism re­mains a for­mi­da­ble chal­lenge that calls for a con­certed and sus­tained re­sponse from the global com­mu­nity. In­dia con­demns in the strong­est terms this heinous and sense­less as­sault, which has snuffed out so many in­no­cent lives, in­clud­ing na­tion­als of both our coun­tries.

“We stand in sol­i­dar­ity with you and the Gov­ern­ment and the peo­ple of Kenya in this hour of grief. Please con­vey our heart­felt con­do­lences to the be­reaved fam­i­lies and our good wishes to the in­jured for a full and speedy re­cov­ery. I am con­fi­dent that Your Ex­cel­lency and the peo­ple of Kenya will have the strength and the re­silience to deal with this tragedy and re­spond firmly to the forces of ter­ror. We stand ready to as­sist you in your ef­forts.”
