Prior to leaving for Paris to participate in the Leaders' Forum of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), President Dalia Grybauskaitė emphasised that everyone must join efforts and look at the fight against terrorism anew because this challenge needs a united response.

Grybauskaitė has told the LRT radio that Lithuania has condemned the terrorist attacks in France and is deeply shocked as this was the bloodiest act of terror in a long time. According to her, barbaric terrorist attacks in France - similarly as in Lebanon, Iraq and Syria - are crimes against peaceful people of the world. The president said countries must unite and look at the fight against terrorism anew. This concerns all countries because terrorism no longer has borders and no country must remain on the sidelines.
