World Bulletin / News Desk

Asian and European leaders on Friday condemned "heinous and cowardly extremist attacks" such as the latest killings in Nice, where at least 84 people died when a truck rammed through a Bastille Day crowd.

In a statement leaders at the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) summit in the Mongolian capital Ulan Bator "reiterated our strong unequivocal condemnation of extremism in all its forms and manifestations committed by whomever, wherever and for whatever purposes".

They said that extremist attacks in Europe, Asia and "many other places, as we have seen in Nice a few hours before our summit" had caused "the unacceptable loss of innocent lives and countless injuries".

Expressing sympathy and condolences to the victims, they reaffirmed their commitment to "join forces to fight the plague of extremism".
