Letter of condolences from Jacques Chirac, President of the Republic, to Abdelaziz Bouteflika, President of Algeria

President Bouteflika, Dear Friend,

I was appalled to learn of the dreadful bomb attacks which hit Algiers this morning. France utterly condemns them.

My thoughts go first to the victims of this tragic event and their families. I ask you to be kind enough to convey to them, on my and the French government's behalf, my most sincere and heartfelt condolences.

I also want to express to you the French government's wholehearted solidarity in the battle the Algerian authorities are waging against international terrorism, which is a battle shared by our two governments.
