In an official release Wednesday, Latvia said it "condemned" a terrorist outrage Tuesday in Tunisia in which 19 people were killed.

"Latvia firmly condemns acts of terror and violence of any kind and conveys deepest condolences to the families of the victims," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

"During its EU Presidency, Latvia has been focusing increased attention on the fight against terrorism, which has become one of the priority tasks on EU agenda," it continued.

"In response to increasing risks of terrorism, an in-depth discussion has already taken place in the EU at various levels and areas, including those dealing with foreign affairs, justice, and the interior, setting priorities for further action to combat terrorism. The priorities also cover strengthening of cooperation with third countries, including Tunisia."
