The OPEC Secretariat was shocked and saddened with disbelief after receiving news of the horrendous events that took place in the heart of the beautiful city of Vienna yesterday evening (November 2). Our heartfelt condolences go out to all those affected.

The Organization offers prayers to those victims of this heinous attack, to those injured we wish a speedy recovery, and our thoughts go out to all the families and loved ones that have been impacted.

We express our strongest condemnation of these and all other terrorist attacks solely aimed at taking human life and creating chaos. Indiscriminate acts of violence and hate can never be justified or tolerated, and we must be united whenever we are confronted by such actions.

OPEC stands in solidarity, hand-in-hand, with our host city, Vienna, which we have called home for 55 years, and the Austrian people.
