Foreign Secretary’s message to the Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs, Didier Reynders

I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the shootings at the Jewish Museum yesterday. My thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims, as well as the Belgian people.

Tragic events like these only strengthen our resolve to work with you and others to eliminate such shocking extremist, discriminatory behaviour in Europe and elsewhere across the world.
