Brussels attacks underscore the need for international cooperation, says Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has joined other world leaders in condemning the atrocious terrorist attacks on the Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek Metro Station in Brussels, Belgium.
In a statement signed by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, Buhari said that the attacks early on Tuesday had reinforced the need for greater international cooperation against terrorism and commiserated with Prime Minister Charles Michel and Belgians over the loss of over 30 lives in the attacks.
The President assured Premier and the people of Belgium that having suffered the horror and anguish of incessant terrorist attacks over several years, Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them on this day of national pain and trauma.
Buhari believed that the appalling attack on Brussels reinforces the need for greater international cooperation to effectively confront and destroy global terrorism and its perpetrators.
The President assures the global community that under his leadership, Nigeria will continue to work with other countries of the world to ensure that terrorism never triumphs over free, peaceful and law-abiding nations and people of the world.
He wishes the more than 100 persons injured in the attacks a speedy recovery.
