BRUSSELS, Belgium - U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, has attended a Transatlantic Discussions forum in Brussels on Friday to discuss international security issues, and during the forum a key suspect in last year's Paris Attacks, Salah Abdeslam was announced captured.
Shaheen, along with other North American and European leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies, spoke about the dangers of "extremism" and solutions brought on by a joint effort to contain terrorism like the attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.
It was during the panel titled “A Grave New World: Future Global Security Challenges,” when leaders got word that Salah Abdeslam had been captured.
After getting the news, Shaheen issued a statement.
“The tragic and senseless attacks in Paris by ISIS strengthened the resolve of the United States and our allies to defeat violent extremism," the statement said. "Abdeslam’s arrest sends the message to terrorists around the world that they cannot hide and that it’s only a matter of time before they answer for their heinous crimes. I want to congratulate French and Belgian investigators and law enforcement on their diligent work that led to this arrest. I look forward to continuing my conversations here in Brussels with European leaders on our joint efforts to end the scourge of violent extremism.”
Following the end of the forum on Monday, Shaheen will depart for Estonia where she will meet with Estonian officials on coordinated cyber security efforts and improving the alliance’s defenses against Russian aggression.
