Obama: Paris attack is an attack on us all (Video)

President Barack Obama declared Friday that the day’s terrorist attacks on Paris were an “an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share,” promising the full support of the United States for its longtime ally.

Obama declined to talk about who might be responsible.

“I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this,” the president said. “It appears that there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak. Until we know from French officials that the situation is under control and we have more information about it, I don’t want to speculate.”

As many as 60 were reported killed in the mass shootings that occurred Friday in Paris.

Obama said the United States is “ready to provide whatever assistance the government and people of France need.”

“We want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism,” Obama said. “Paris itself represents the timeless values of human progress. Those who think that they can terrorize the people of France or the values that they stand for are wrong.”

“The American people draw strength from the French people’s commitment to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness,” Obama continued.

Obama said he has not called French President Francois Hollande since the shooting, but “actually by coincidence was talking to him earlier today in preparation for the G-20 meeting.”

“I am confident that I’ll be in direct communications with him in the next few days and we’ll be coordinating in any ways that they think are helpful in the investigation of what’s happened,” Obama said.
