UK Foreign Secretary condemns attack on US Consulate in Benghazi

Té / 13 September 2012

Speaking yesterday, Foreign Secretary William Hague said:

“I strongly condemn the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi yesterday. There is no justification for such an attack and the appalling death of an US official. My thoughts and condolences are with his family and all his colleagues at the State Department.

“I welcome President Magariaf’s condemnation of this incident. It is essential that the Libyan authorities take urgent action to improve security, particularly in Benghazi, and identify those responsible for such attacks. The UK stands ready to assist the Libyan authorities in any way we can and to support their efforts to continue the path towards a stable and secure Libya that fulfils the aspirations of the Libyan people.”
