Monday, July 11, 2005 - Prime Minister Honourable Dr. Kenny Anthony has written to the government and people of Great Britain expressing great shock and sorrow over the bombings which occurred in London last week.

Dr. Anthony said, “We deplore and we condemn in the most emphatic ways these acts of terror and barbarism perpetuated against the government and people of the United Kingdom with whom we share a long history and deep friendship. We are deeply saddened at the loss of innocent lives and the physical and emotional injury inflicted upon those who survived. Our hearts and our prayers go out to the victims and to their friends, families and loved ones.”

Dr. Anthony said it was not only an attack on the United Kingdom “The grief which you, your government and the people of the United Kingdom experience will most certainly be shared by many, but particularly so, by the government and people of Saint Lucia. I ask Prime Minister, that you please accept these expressions of our outrage, sorrow and support and that you convey those same sentiments to your government and people. I ask finally that you remain assured of our continued solidarity and support in this difficult time.”

Meanwhile the Ministry of External Affairs, International Trade and Civil Aviation has also extended condolences to the government and people of Great Britain.

“The Government of Saint Lucia wishes to affirm to the government and people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland that Saint Lucia stands resolutely in solidarity with the British Government and the rest of the international community in denouncing such acts of terrorism and crimes against humanity. The Government and people of Saint Lucia believe that such acts are a demonstration of cowardice and lack of respect for the sanctity of life.

The Government and people of Saint Lucia are comforted by the knowledge that the government and people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland are recovering from the tragedy and trauma and we are satisfied that your government will rise to the challenge of returning this great democracy to a state of normalcy. Saint Lucia shares your resolve and that of the international community to bring the perpetrators of such heinous crimes to justice. ”

A series of attacks rocked London’s transport network on Thursday 7th July killing some 50 people and leaving some 700 nursing injuries.
