In an interview with QHA, Luck Jacobs, Ambassador Preliminary and Plenipotentiary of the Kingdom of Belgium to Ukraine, commented on the terror attacks in Brussels.
“It would be wrong to make any kinds of statements before an official statement of the Belgian government has been released. Let me just say that the official death toll has not been released yet. I believe the most important thing now is to render first aid to the injured and not to count the dead, - Luck Jacobs said.
Luck Jacobs went on to say that the airport and subway stations where the blasts occurred have been closed and all people evacuated. Brussels residents are advised to stay indoors for safety reasons.
“A meeting of the Security Council of Belgium is currently on. Terror alert in Belgium has been raised to the highest 4 and is applicable to all of the country, and not just Brussels. The same terror alert was declared in the city after terror attacks in Paris. However, back then it was only applicable to Brussels,” said the Belgian Ambassador.
He also thanked Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and all Ukrainians for their support.
Two explosions were reported to have occurred at Brussels’ Zaventem airport at 8 a.m. local time on March 22.
