Dichiarazione stampa del Consiglio di sicurezza sull’attacco terroristico a Nizza, in Francia


15 lug - I membri del Consiglio di sicurezza hanno condannato perentoriamente l’attacco barbaro e cordardo a Nizza, in Francia, nella notte delle celebrazioni nazionali per l’anniversario della presa della Bastiglia, nel quale almeno 77 persone, tra cui bambini, sono state uccise e altre decine ferite.

The members of the Security Council expressed their deep sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, as well as to the Government of France.
The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security.

The members of the Security Council reiterated that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed. They reaffirmed the need for all States to combat by all means, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and other obligations under international law, including international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts.

The members of the Security Council underlined the need to bring the perpetrators of these terrorist acts to justice.


Anche l'Alto Commissario per i Diritti umani Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein si è detto inorridito dall'orribile massacro della scorsa notte:

This latest murderous assault on ordinary people, using a simple truck as a deadly weapon, is yet another blow aimed at the heart of humanity by extremists. There are now so many deadly attacks – in Baghdad, Brussels, Dhaka, Istanbul, Medina, Orlando – to name just a fraction of those that have occurred in recent months, that words of condemnation sound like damp leaves fluttering to the ground after another violent storm.

While the motives driving yesterday’s killer in Nice are still to be established, in general we are confronted by an ideology that seems to be creating an endless supply of fanatics prepared to kill for the sake of killing. When one means of murder – hijacking planes, planting bombs, getting hold of assault rifles – becomes more difficult, they simply find another. And our response needs to be carefully calculated and highly sophisticated. It is not simply about heightened security, it is about deflating the ideology itself until it dwindles back to where it belongs -- which is nowhere.
