“The tragedy confirms a need for further joint efforts in fight against the threat of terrorism,” Sergey Lavrov told French counterpart Laurent Fabius ahead of a visit to Paris.
The prime ministers of Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and other countries also arrived to the palace. Attorney General Eric Holder presents the United States.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas also accepted French president’s invitation to attend a march in support of democratic values.
