EU-London Attacks

European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso Thursday denounced the terror attacks in London and called for global action against terrorism.

"This is an attack on the people of Britain, it is an attack on democracy, and it is an attack on the fundamental freedoms which go to the heart of the European Union," said Barroso who is attending a G-8 summit in Gleneagles in a statement released to the press in Brussels.

"Citizens across Europe share the grief which is being felt by the people of Britain, and we share the sense of vulnerability about a threat which can strike any of our Member States at any time," he said.

"The European Union will offer every support and assistance available to the British authorities coping with this atrocity. We must stand resolutely together against terrorism in all its forms." "At a time when world leaders are uniting to fight poverty, we can not allow the language of violence to prevail. Today's attacks reinforce the urgency of global solidarity and action," said the head of the EU executive.

"There must be no safe haven for terrorists and terrorism in the European Union," he added.
