Sun, Apr 21, 2019, 11:47 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 21, Colombo: The European Union issuing a statement on the multiple bomb attacks on Sri Lankan's churches and hotels on Easter Sunday said it is truly a sad for the country and the world.

The High Representative/Vice-President of EU Federica Mogherini offering condolences to the families and friends of those who have been killed, the EU said it is also ready to offer support.

EU's message in full:

"A series of coordinated attacks hit churches and hotels in Sri Lanka this morning, causing extreme devastation. With men, women and children, from all walks of life and from different nationalities among the victims, this is a truly sad day for the country and for the world.

The European Union offers its most sincere condolences to the families and friends of those who have been killed and wishes a speedy recovery to the many wounded.

Easter Sunday is a special moment for Christians around the world. It is a time to give thanks, for remembrance, celebration, and peaceful prayer. Such acts of violence on this Holy Day are acts of violence against all beliefs and denominations, and against all those who value the freedom of religion and the choice to worship.

The European Union stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka and the Sri Lankan authorities at this difficult time. The European Union is also ready to offer support."
