President Barack Obama described the recent launch of attacks on Paris as a “an attack on all of humanity and the universal values we share.”
The 54-year-old President revealed that the United States is willing to do “whatever it takes to work with the French people and with nations around the world to bring these terrorists to justice.”
“This is a heart-breaking situation, and obviously those of us here in the United States know what it’s like. We’ve gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves, and whenever these kinds of attacks happen, we’ve always been able to count on the French people to stand with us,” he said.
So far, at least 60 people have been reported dead in the devastating attacks in Paris, France. French President François Hollande has declared the country under a state of emergency.
Our prayers and condolences are with the people of Paris.
