We are deeply shocked by the series of bombings
against places including a Hindu temple in Varanasi,
India, on 7 March (Tue), which has resulted in
many deaths and casualties. The Government of Japan
expresses sympathy for those killed by bombs and
sends condolences to the bereaved families. We
also express sympathy for those injured and pray
for their early recovery.
We strongly condemn these bombings, which constitute
inexcusable terrorist acts targeted at innocent
people. Such terrorist acts cannot be justified
by any reason, and the perpetrators of the attacks
should be brought to justice.
The Government of Japan will continue to strengthen
our cooperation with the Government of India to
tackle international terrorism.
