Georgian leaders condemned a terror attack in Barcelona on August 17 that left 13 people dead and more than 100 injured.

“I am deeply saddened by the terrorist attack that took place in Barcelona, Spain and claimed lives of innocent people. My heartfelt condolences to the people and the government of Spain,” Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said in a statement.

“Terrorism takes over new forms of brutality to challenge the safety of citizens throughout the world. It claims lives of completely innocent people. I believe that the civilized world will overcome this grave challenge and it will achieve peace. We have to spare no effort to defeat terrorism and ensure peace for people,” he added.
