London, Mar 1: The European Union High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) Javier Solana has condemed the naxalites' landmine attack in Chhattisgarh yesterday that killed at least 27 poeple and maimed 40 others.

He said, ''I wish to condemn in the strongest possible terms the terrorist attack in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh.'' ''There can be no possible defence for the use of indiscriminate weapons such as landmines to kill and maim unarmed civilians,'' he said, extending his condolences and sympathy to the families of the victims, injured and to the Indian authorities.

Mr Solana said political claims ''can never justify criminal, terrorist acts, which only hurt those they claim to serve.'' He also stressed that India and EU and India were united in their common commitment to democracy, pluralism and rule of law.

''We shall continue to promote these for all our people through our Strategic Partnership,'' he said.
