AIJ
PRIME MINISTER
FOR MEDIA 9 NOVEMBER 1987
I have sent the following message to Prime Minister
Thatcher: I was appalled to learn of the terrorist outrage at
Enniskillen. I express through you the deepest sympathy
of the Government and people of Australia to the
relatives and friends of those killed in this callous
crime and to the surviving victims.
The Australian Government strongly supports the efforts
of the British and Irish Governments through the
Anglo-Irish Agreement to end communal strife in Northern
Ireland through reconciliation and the search for
understanding. We utterly repudiate violence.
I join you in your forthright condemnation of this
despicable and cowardly act.
