Europe-Asia summit condemns terrorism after Nice attack

Leaders observe a minute of silence for victims of the Nice attack before the opening session of the Asia-Europe summit in Ulan BatorLeaders of Asia and Europe condemned international terrorism at a summit in Mongolia Friday, as an attack in Nice drew attention away from Beijing’s rejection of a tribunal ruling dismissing its extensive South China Sea claims. The biennial Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM), which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, is supposed to be a venue for increasing cooperation across the Eurasian region and exploring ways to strengthen global agreements governing everything from trade to civil aviation. Counter-terrorism efforts were already due to be discussed, but the issue was given renewed urgency by the carnage in Nice, where a truck ploughed into Bastille Day revellers, killing at least 84 in what President Francois Hollande called a “terrorist” attack.
