Dominican president sends condolences to French people over Paris attacks
Santo Domingo.– President Danilo Medina last night sent a message of condolences to the French people over the terrorist attacks in Paris and strongly condemned the onslaught that claimed the lives of 153 people.
"My condolences and solidarity to the French people for the terrorist attacks tonight. The Dominican government and the people are with you," the president said on his twitter account @DaniloMedina.
Medina also said the attacks in Paris have to be seen as inhumane acts. "DR repudiates and deeply regrets these actions," he pointed out.
