WEB Notes: “An attack on us all” equals more speak of globalism.

The United Nations has strongly condemned today’s terrorist bombings in Brussels, extending condolences to the victims and their families while expressing solidarity with the people and Government of Belgium.

A statement issued by the members of the Security Council indicated that more than 30 people were killed and many more injured in the attacks, for which the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Da’esh) has claimed responsibility. The 15-member body stressed the need to intensify regional and international efforts to overcome terrorism and violent extremism, while reaffirming that “terrorism constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security.”

“This is not an attack on Belgium, it is an attack on us all and sadly these tragic events remind us again that we are facing a global threat that needs to be addressed globally,” said UNWTO Secretary-General, Taleb Rifai.
