Joint statement by parliamentary party chairs and Blue Reform on 6.7.2017
We have had a constructive discussion and have consequently updated our situation awareness of internal security and concerns of citizens.
We appeal to the Finnish people and ask them to hold to facts and keep the discussion civil and respectful. Blame must not be placed on innocent people.
We have trust and confidence in the Finnish rule of law and the actions of authorities. We are committed to constantly improving them.
We strongly condemn terrorism in all its forms and violence of any kind. We also strongly condemn hate speech.
We, in the capacity of representatives of our parties, pledge to build a safer and more united Finland and to discuss these efforts regularly together.
