As a sign of solidarity with the people and the government of Belgium, the main facade of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) in Mexico City was lit with the colors of the Belgian flag, following the attacks in Brussels.

The government of Mexico, through the Foreign Ministry, condemned in the strongest terms the attacks in Zaventem airport and metro station Maelbeek, which caused dozens of deaths and injuries.

According to Notimex, the Foreign Ministry reiterated its rejection of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, and conveyed condolences and solidarity to the people and government of the Kingdom of Belgium and the relatives of the victims.
