DFA Statement on U.K. Mosque Attack

The Department of Foreign Affairs condemns the attack carried out near the Finsbury Park mosque in London, which killed one and injured ten people. The appalling attack stands against the shared values of the Philippines and the UK as peace-loving and tolerant societies that respect all religions.
The Philippines expresses its condolences and sympathy with the victim, the injured, and their families, and reaffirms its solidarity with the United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism and all its forms.
The Philippine Embassy in London is monitoring the incident. So far there are no known Filipino victims. The Embassy stands ready to offer assistance and calls on the Filipino community to reach out with any information on kababayans possibly affected by this attack. END
