MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry have visited the French Embassy in Moscow to express condolences on the terrorist attack in Nice, a TASS correspondent reported from the scene.
The two top diplomats laid flowers at the embassy wall in memory of the victims. Kerry laid white roses at the improvised memorial, and Lavrov - red ones.
Russia is in solidarity with Paris after Thursday’s terrorist attack in Nice, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday.
"Russia is in solidarity with French people," Lavrov wrote in the condolence book at the French Embassy in Moscow. "We grieve together with you. The best response to the horrible terrorist attack in Nice will be our common decisiveness to not let terrorists get away with that, no matter where they try to commit their filthy and vile acts," he added.
To express condolences Lavrov and Kerry interrupted the talks that began at 10am Moscow Time.
Meanwhile, Muscovites and guests of the Russian capital have been laying flowers at the entrances to the French Embassy in Moscow. A book of condolences has been opened in the diplomatic mission for those willing to express solidarity with the victims of the terrorist attack.
There were thousands of people at the moment of the attack on Thursday evening on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, who were leaving a festive firework display commemorating Bastille Day. A truck rammed into the crowd at full speed.
According to the latest reports, 84 people have been killed, about 70 others were wounded, 18 of them are in critical condition.
