New Delhi, Oct.23 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday condemned the shoot-out in the Canadian Parliament and the attacks on Canadian military personnel in Ottawa and Quebec respectively.

"I strongly condemn the attacks on the Canadian military personnel in Quebec and Ottawa and the shooting in Canadian Parliament in Ottawa," Prime Minister Modi told media personnel during his aerial survey of the Siachen glacier.

"The parliament is a temple of democracy and holds a special place in the hearts of those who believe in democratic ideals," he added.

Expressing commiserations on behalf of people of India, Prime Minister Modi said, "Our condolences to people of Canada for loss of its soldiers. Our solidarity is with them at this difficult moment."

"Canada is one of India's strongest partners and we will continue to strengthen our cooperation in combating terrorism for safer future of our people," he added.
