Message of Condolence from Prime Minister Abe to President Hollande of France on the attacks in Paris

I cannot help but be immensely shocked and outraged to hear about the terrorist attacks in Paris, resulting in a large number of casualties. Outrageous acts of terrorism such as this cannot be tolerated for any reason and I resolutely condemn it.
On behalf of the government and people of Japan, I express our sincere solidarity with France and the people of France. I would also like to express our sincere condolences to all the victims and their families, and to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the injured. Japan stands with France at this difficult time. —November 14, 2015
