No act of terror will stop march of freedom, says Kerry
US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday said no act of terror will ever stop “the march of freedom” and the entire world is with the people of France.
In the deadliest terror attack in France in four decades, heavily-armed gunmen stormed a satirical newspaper’s office in Paris on January 7 and shot dead at least 12 people.
Speaking at the 7th Vibrant Gujarat Summit, Kerry said: “We may have come from different walks of life. But we stand together this morning with the people of France as a marching tribute to the victims of last week’s murderous attack on the headquarters of satirical weekly Charle Hebdo.
“We stand together in freedom and together we make it clear that no act of terror will ever stop the march of freedom.”
The entire world stand together not just in “anger and outrage” but in “solidarity and commitment” to the cause of confronting extremism, he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also denounced the attack in Paris terming it as “condemnable and despicable” act, and said India’s solidarity was with the people of France.
