“We are deeply shocked by the terrorist attack which has cost many people’s lives today at the Charlie Hebdo headquarters in Paris. The EPP Group strongly condemns these meaningless murders", said Manfred Weber MEP, Chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament.

“The attack against Charlie Hebdo is an attack against freedom of press and freedom of expression which are core European values, together with freedom of religion. Europe must stand up for these values. We cannot allow those who hate the principles of freedom and democracy, on which our societies are built, put them into question. No religion or political belief can be used to justify murder”, he said.

"Europe must stand united in the fight against terror to protect our citizens and our European models of society. We stand firmly by France’s side in its fight against terrorism.“
