Singapore condemns ‘vicious’ terrorist attacks in London

SINGAPORE: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has issued a statement condemning the “vicious” attacks in London.

On Saturday night (Jun 3), London time, armed police opened fire during attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market after reports of stabbings and a van ploughing into pedestrians. “Multiple” casualties were reported in the attacks.

“Singapore condemns the vicious terrorist attacks that occurred in London,” MFA said in its statement. “There can be no justification for such attacks against innocent civilians.

“We express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims, and wish the injured a speedy recovery. We stand in solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom.”

There have been no reports of Singaporeans directly affected or injured in the attacks, the ministry said.

The Singapore High Commission in London has reached out to Singaporeans who are e-registered in London, MFA added. The High Commission is also working closely with the London authorities to monitor the situation.

  1. Total Defence strategies must become the daily norm for Singapore The obvious vulnerable spots and people-populated areas must receive the highest form of security. The armed forces must, henceforth, work together with the police and private security agencies to pre-empt attacks. Extra vigilance is what is needed daily from everyone, including schools managements, teachers and staff, school security guards/agencies, parents, car park operators and more. We need road side barriers to be set up at vulnerable pedestrian walkways and we definitely need the toughest security implementation at crowded events – like KPOP concerts,, Speakers’ Corner major events, and religious events or festivals, just to cite some examples.

    We must all stay united as one and not allow terrorists to destroy our lives. We have the right to stand tall and do our part, and it is a critical role, to save our nation from the evil of terrorism. Complacency must never creep in. We must stay constantly alert, and responsible.
