Remarks Regarding Boston Marathon, Parliament House, Canberra April 16, 2013

EO&E...........................................................................................................................................

It’s important to show solidarity with America and with the people of Boston on this difficult day.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and injured in this terrible incident.

While it’s too early to say who was responsible, obviously an event like this should deepen our resolve to stand up for democratic values and democratic decencies.

I have this morning spoken with Ambassador Bleich, so that he is assured that Australians stand together with the United States

on this sad day.
