Minister Charles Flanagan, International Relations, Press Releases, Middle East and North Africa, 2015

 

The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr Charlie Flanagan TD, has condemned the murder of Mr Kenji Goto by the ISIS terrorist group.

 

"On behalf of the Irish people I send my condolences to the family of Kenji Goto and to the government of Prime Minister Abe and the Japanese people.

Kenji Goto, like other victims of ISIS' brutality, was devoted to helping the people of Syria and we must recall his bravery and humanity, while condemning utterly the depraved barbarity of his death.

Ireland stands against the inhumanity of ISIS and its unspeakable outrages against the peoples of the Middle East and those humanitarian and media workers who place their lives at risk to assist the Syrian population."
