Obama condemns Mumbai terrorist explosions, cheers Janice Hahn's election to Congress
I strongly condemn the outrageous attacks in Mumbai, and my thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and those who have lost loved ones.
The U.S. government continues to monitor the situation, including the safety and security of our citizens. India is a close friend and partner of the United States.
The American people will stand with the Indian people in times of trial, and we will offer support to India’s efforts to bring the perpetrators of these terrible crimes to justice.
During my trip to Mumbai, I saw firsthand the strength and resilience of the Indian people, and I have no doubt that India will overcome these deplorable terrorist attacks. ####
I want to extend my congratulations to Congresswoman-elect Janice Hahn for her victory in California’s 36th Congressional District.
Janice and I both believe that in order to win the future, we need to create jobs and grow our economy and pursue a balanced approach to deficit reduction.
In Congress, Janice will continue to fight for the people of the South Bay and add another chapter to her family’s long history of dedicated service to the people of California. I look forward to working with her. ####
