New Zealand Parliament formally condemns Sri Lanka attacks

The New Zealand Parliament has condemned the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka and the shooting at a synogogue in San Diego, Radio New Zealand reported.

As Parliament resumed after a two week recess today, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern moved that the House condemn the attacks.

She said the government wished to extend its deepest condolences to the communities affected.

“I’m struck by the tragic parallel between these attacks and the one which took place in Chch on the 15th of March.

“They all saw innocent lives lost in the act of peaceful prayer and worship. New Zealand stands alongside both countries in condemning all forms of terrorism.”
