Tel Aviv suicide bombing message from M. Jacques CHIRAC,
President of the Republic, to Mr Moshe KATSAV, President of Israel.
Paris, 17 April 2006
The suicide bombing which this morning claimed many lives in Tel Aviv arouses horror and condemnation. I most categorically condemn it.
On this day of mourning for your country and your people, I extend to you, personally and on France's behalf, my most sincere condolences for the unfortunate victims and their families who have been dealt such a cruel blow.
More than ever, we remain determined to combat terrorism. France is at Israel's side in this new ordeal.
