The French embassy in the Philippines released an official statement Saturday on the terrorist attacks in Paris, expressing the French people’s gratitude for the many expressions of solidarity and sympathy they have received since the news of the attacks spread, and confirming the French government’s resolve to “fight against extremism.”

The statement follows:

Following the terrorist attacks that claimed many lives and injured even more innocent people in Paris and its region on November 13, France has received many messages of solidarity from all over the world. We are deeply touched by the heartfelt expressions of support in the Philippines extended by President Benigno S. Aquino III, the national and local authorities, the people of the Philippines, and all those from foreign embassies and groups who have been expressing their sympathy to the French people. France will always fight against extremism and stand for the values of democracy and human rights enshrined in our national motto “LIBERTE, EGALITE, FRATERNITE” which was coined in Paris centuries ago.

Today we are all Parisians.
