NATO strongly condemns Brussels terror attacks

BRUSSELS, March 23 (KUNA) — The North Atlantic Council (NAC) condemned here Wednesday in the strongest terms the terrorist attacks in Brussels yesterday, in which 34 people were killed. NAC is the principal political decision-making body within NATO.
“Brussels is the home of NATO headquarters and the capital of Belgium and Europe. It is also a symbol of a Europe whole, free and at peace. We will defend our values against the callous acts of those who seek to strike against them,” said the Council in a statement.
“We are resolute in our determination to prevent and defeat terrorism. We will do this by standing together, as open societies and as democracies. We stand in solidarity with Belgium,” it added. (end) nk.hb
