Armenia strongly condemned on Tuesday a series of terrorist attacks in Belgium’s capital Brussels that left at least 34 people dead.
Two blasts tore through the departures hall of Brussels’s Zaventem airport in the morning, followed by an explosion at the Maalbeek metro station near the European Union institutions.
Brussels transport officials said 15 people died at the metro station, and media reported that up to 13 others died at the airport. Officials said one of the explosions appeared to be caused by a suicide bomber.
The airport and all public transport in Brussels were shut down after Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel described as "blind, violent, and cowardly" attacks.
“At this difficult moment, I want to express condolences and support to you, the people of friendly Belgium and relatives of the victims, wishing patience and courage of spirit,” President Serzh Sarkisian said in a written message to Michel.
“Armenia strongly condemns any manifestation of terrorism and remains committed to making its contribution to the international fight against that evil,” he said.
