Demetriou expressed “shock for the murderous attack on a school in Belgrade, which claimed the lives of innocent children, as well as for the violent armed attack that followed in a suburb of the Serbian capital.

In a statement released by parliament, Demetriou also offered her condolences, on behalf of all MPs, to the families of the victims and to all people in Serbia.
