Concerning the terrorist attack in London yesterday before midnight on London Bridge and then the nearby Borough Market, wherein seven people lost their lives and 48 were injured, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic Miroslav Lajčák sent a telegram of condolence to his UK counterpart Boris Johnson today (4 June).
 
 

“I have been deeply saddened to learn of the terrorist attack in London. There is nothing to justify these shameful and absurd acts of terrorism aimed at innocent people to spread fear and hatred.  I would like to express my condolences to you and to convey them to the people of the United Kingdom and the families of the victims of this attack. And I reaffirm our resolve to stand side by side with the United Kingdom and the allies in fighting terrorism,” stated Lajčák in the telegram of condolence.
 

The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic is not aware of any Slovak citizens who might have suffered injuries or be otherwise affected by the attack. The Slovak Embassy in London and the Slovak Foreign and European Ministry continue to closely follow developments and are in touch with the relevant UK authorities.  Slovak citizens unable to contact their relatives in London can approach the 24-hour diplomatic service and call 02 5978 5978. We also recommend Slovak citizens to avoid London Bridge and the nearby Borough Market, Southwark Bridge, Borough High Street, Southwark Street, Lower Thames Street, King William Street, Gracechurch Street, and Canon Street due to limitations on movement and the ongoing police investigation.
