SA condemns terrorist attack in the Peoples Republic of China

The South African Government condemns in the strongest possible terms the terrorist attack which took place in Urumqi, capital of the Xinjiang Autonomous Region in Northwest China on 22 May 2014 in which 31 people lost their lives and more than 90 were injured.

The South Africa Government condemns all forms and manner of terrorism. We believe that terrorism in any form and from whichever quarter cannot be condoned.

The South African government sends it deepest condolences to the government and the people of the People’s Republic of China, and in particularly to the families of the deceased and wish the injured speedy recoveries.
