President Dilma reiterated, on November 15, her repulse against the terrorist attacks in Paris.
She said that “all the Brazilians are shocked with the atrocities coordinated by the Islamic State that generated hundreds of deaths and suffering last Friday, in Paris. A joint international action is extremely urgent to combat terrorism.”
