The United Nations Security Council condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist attack at two mosques in New Zealand in which at least 49 people were killed, the envoy for France, which currently holds the council's rotating presidency, said on Friday, ONA reports quoting Reuters.

“The members of the Security Council condemn in the strongest possible terms the hideous attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, earlier today,” French Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Anne Gueguen said. "The members of the council express their deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed, and they offer their empathy to the people and the government of New Zealand.”

Gueguen asked all members who were present at the meeting to rise for a moment of silence for the victims of the massacre.
