We are deeply sorry for having entered 2017 with an event that gave all of us a deep shock. An attack committed in a night when innocent people from all nations and all races, who have nothing to do with fight, violence and war, were celebrating the coming of the New Year cannot be justified in any way. We harshly condemn this sneaky, cowardly, treacherous terrorist action. We shall not be defeated by terror; we shall not surrender to this nightmare. We offer our sincerest condolences to and wish patience for our people.
