The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela expresses its condolences to the British people and government for the terrorist attack on May 22nd in Manchester, in which twenty two people lost their lives and dozens were injured. We extend our sympathy to the family and friends of the victims of this reproachable incident.
Venezuela categorically condemns and rejects terrorism in all of its forms, and reiterates its call on the international community to attend to and prevent the causes of these serious hate crimes which affect all of humanity.
