Foreign Minister Steinmeier issued the following statement today (15 July) on the attack in Nice:
A day dedicated to the joy and pride of the French nation has ended in tragedy, senselessly claiming many lives. People who were celebrating peacefully were killed or are now fighting for their lives. Our thoughts and heartfelt sympathy are with the victims, their relatives and all the people of France. We share in the country’s grief and stand resolutely at its side in this dark hour.
