Paris terrorist attack to affect Syria talks – Austrian FM
Terrorist attack in Paris will affect the Syria talks in Vienna, but they will be held in any case, RIA Novosti quoted Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz as saying Nov. 14.
"Of course, attacks in Paris will affect the Syrian negotiations, which are now held in Vienna, but talks will take place in any case," he said. "Of course, at the same time, security measures have been greatly increased here."
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said earlier that the meeting in Vienna will begin with a report of the French foreign ministry on the situation in Paris.
Gunmen and bombers attacked restaurants, a concert hall and a sports stadium at locations across Paris Nov.13, killing at least 120 people in a deadly rampage that President Francois Hollande called an unprecedented terrorist attack.
Four gunmen systematically slaughtered at least 87 young people attending a rock concert at the Bataclan music hall. Some 40 more people were killed in five other attacks in the Paris region, including an apparent double suicide bombing outside the national stadium, where the French president Hollande and the German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier were watching a friendly soccer international. Some 200 people were injured.
