FRENCH Ambassador to Slovakia Didier Lopinot thanked Slovaks for taking part in three spontaneous gatherings in front of the French Embassy in Bratislava after the terrorist attacks in Paris in early January.

At the same time Lopinot invited people to another meeting.

“Today, after three days of sorrow and the great manifestations of support that were organised in France and around the world, I want to invite you to come to the embassy this evening [January 12 – ed. note] ... at 18:30 in order to raise the French colours once again and to show our attachment to democratic and republican values,” Lopinot said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Slovaks can also write comments in a book of condolences that has been placed at the French Institute on Sedlárska Street in Bratislava until January 14 evening, TASR wrote.

The terrorist attacks claimed 17 victims. The brutality of the attacks shocked France and caused a wave of solidarity and of determination to fight for the preservation of France’s fundamental values and to stand up against violence and terrorism.
