    The world community must cooperate in its reaction to such tragic events as the Thursday night deadly Nice attack, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at the ASEM forum.

    ULAANBAATAR (Sputnik) – The world community must cooperate in its reaction to such tragic events as the Thursday night deadly Nice attack, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) forum currently underway in the capital of Mongolia.

    "Terrorism has no boundaries and is a common threat both for Europe and Asia. As of now, there are 80 victims [of the Nice attack], including children, a large number of tourists. According to media reports there are EU and Russian citizens among the victims…We must find answers to such challengers, to show solidarity, to take to show solidarity, to do everything we can to fight against terrorism. Especially since terrorists and their sponsors only understand force, and we must use it," Medvedev said.

    On Thursday night, a truck rammed into a large crowd that was celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, killing at least 80 people and injuring dozens of others. French President Francois Hollande did not exclude that the attack could be a terrorist act.
