A terrorist attack that hit Mogadishu seaport in Somalia on Sunday left dozens of casualties and many more wounded.
The attack was carried out by the Al-Shabaab terrorist group and targeted the civilian population who have already paid a heavy price in a country affected by decades of war.
In a statement issued on Monday, the European Union (EU) condemned the attack and expressed its condolences to the families of the victims, and wished a speedy recovery to those injured.
The EU said in the statement that these actions come at a moment that Somalia shows hope: the electoral process Somalia has embarked upon is a step towards a future to benefit the Somali population as a whole.
The EU, a long-term partner to Somalia, said it stands ready to accompany the country on this road.
