Taiwan condemns terrorist attacks in Paris

Taipei, Nov. 14 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou (???) on Saturday condemned the terrorist attacks in Paris overnight and expressed condolences on behalf of Taiwan's government and its people to those who lost their loved ones in the incident. "We stand side by side with the French people in condemning the violence and hoping that order will be restored as soon as possible," Ma also said to reporters after attending a public event. Earlier, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs urged Taiwan's citizens to avoid unnecessary travels to the Paris region but stopped short of raising the level of travel alert for France. The MOFA called on Taiwan's citizens to take extra caution when traveling and to avoid going to the Paris region for the time being unless necessary. The ministry and the government's representative office in France will monitor the situation in Paris as it develops, the MOFA said. (By Chen Chi-chung and Jay Chen)
