The Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili expressed his condolences to the families of the victims in his statement.
“I express my deepest sorrow over the death of innocent people following the terrorist attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait. I offer my sincere condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims and to the people of France, Tunisia and Kuwait,” he said.
He stated that it is everybody’s duty to prevent such danger.
“Georgia firmly stands by the international community and partner countries in the fight against violence and terrorism in the world,” the letter said.
The President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili also expressed his concern about the recent incidents.
“I am deeply concerned by terroristic attacks that took place in France, Kuwait and Tunisia, causing the death of dozens of people; our country unequivocally condemns any form of terrorism and together with the international community continues to fight against the one of the largest threats of the modern world,” the statement reads.
Minister of Defense Tina Khidasheli also expressed her condolences to the families of the deceased.
According to Khidasheli, we often see hard consequences of such brutal terrorist actions and she underlined the importance of Georgia’s participation in such operations.
“These actions confirms and clarifies how significant the operation in which Georgia participates is and how important is the unity of the coalition forces,” she stated.
It should be noted that the terrorist attacks started in France on June 26, where two people were hurt in the blast at a U.S.-owned factory near Lyon in southeastern France.
On that day more terroristic attacks occurred on two more continents.
In Tunisia, three gunmen opened fire on beachgoers at an oceanfront hotel in Sousse, leaving 37 dead and 36 wounded.
In Kuwait, ISIS claimed responsibility for a blast that killed 27 people at a Shiite-affiliated mosque.
