Her Excellency the Ambassador of France

It is with huge sadness that I write to you to express my sincere condolences on behalf of the British Labour Party in the aftermath of the horrific attack that occurred in Nice yesterday evening.
I have no doubt that the attack during celebrations for Bastille Day, which commemorates the French Revolution and honours the principles of liberté, égalité, fraternité, will only redouble the commitment of the French people to these universal ideals.
Those killed yesterday will doubtless have been of different religions, ethnicities and nationalities. It was an attack on us all, attempting to set people against each other. That is why instead, we stand together, now and always, in defense of tolerance, peace and justice.
Today and in the coming weeks and months, we and others across the globe, stand in solidarity with you and the people of France.
Jeremy Corbyn MP
Leader of the Labour Party
