MEA Official Spokesperson's Press Statement on the Boston Bombings

New Delhi
April 16, 2013

The President and Prime Minister of India have already strongly condemned the multiple bombings in Central Boston on April 15. The solidarity and sympathy of the people of India have been expressed by India’s leadership, including in a letter of condolence sent by the Prime Minister to the President of the United States of America earlier this morning.

As has been underlined by India’s leaders, India remains committed to the effort to defeat terrorism and to uphold the values that define democratic nations such as ours.

Although no reports have as yet been received of injuries caused to Indian nationals as a result of this despicable act, our Embassy in Washington DC and our Consulate General in New York have been placed on alert. Indian nationals with concerns to report may do so at the Embassy’s emergency number, (001) 202 939 7000.
