VICTORIA, March 5 -- President of the Seychelles James Michel on Tuesday extended condolences from the government and people of the Indian Ocean archipelago state to Chinese President Xi Jinping, the people of China and the victims and their families after the terror attack in Kunming, according to a statement from the Presidency.
In his message, President Michel said the Seychelles unreservedly condemns the terror perpetrated against the people of China and stands in solidarity with China at this time of great sadness. "In the wake of this tragedy, we also renew our resolve to further strengthen our cooperation with like-minded countries such as China to eliminate the scourge of these acts of terror," President Michel said in the message.
A group of knife-wielding assailants slashed frantically at crowds at Kunming Railway Station late Saturday, killing 29 civilians and injuring 143 in the southwestern Chinese city. The terror attack immediately sparked worldwide condemnations.
