India, in a press release issued by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Sunday, said, “We strongly condemn the serial blasts on multiple locations in Sri Lanka today morning in which many people have been killed and injured. We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to the people and Government of Sri Lanka. We wish speedy recovery to those injured in the attacks.”
Calling for expeditious justice, it also said: “India has always opposed and rejected terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, and has urged concerted action by the international community against terrorism, including cross-border terrorism. There can be no justification whatsoever for any act of terror. We call for perpetrators of such ghastly and heinous act and those who provide them support to be brought to justice expeditiously.”
“We stand together with the people and Government of Sri Lanka in this hour of grief,” the note concluded.
