The United Nations Security Council and the Middle East Quartet - comprising the UN, European Union, Russia and the United States - condemned late on Thursday the attack on Israelis in Bulgaria the day before.

The 15-member body expressed its deep sympathy and sincere condolences to the victims of the “heinous” act and to their families, and reaffirmed that “terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.”

For its part, the Quartet said the perpetrators must be apprehended and brought to justice, and supports all international efforts to assist the Bulgarian authorities and others in the effort.

“This attack provides a reminder of the need for the members of the international community to stand side-by-side in the effort to prevent terrorism wherever it may be practiced,” the group’s members said. “The Quartet will continue its effort to reach comprehensive, just and lasting settlement in the Middle East, where all the people will live in peace and security,” it said.

The Quartet also offered its condolences and sympathies to the families and friends of the Israelis and others killed or injured in the attack, as well as to the people of Bulgaria.
