Gregor Gysi, President of the European Left (EL) declares on the suspected terror attack in London
The attack in the heart of London with many death and injured devastates us. Our thoughts are with the injured, the relatives and friends of the victims.
The background of this act has to be solved quickly and completely. Speculations about the motivation of the perpetrator are out of place today, but it raises concerns that the attack happened in direct proximity to the parliament.
We in the west need to think about a whole new relation to people and countries influenced by Islam if we want to prevent hate, hostility and attacks. This applies independently to the clarification of this case.
President of the Party of the European Left (EL)
