It is with deep sorrow that I have learned about the plane crash in France that cost the lives of 150 people.
My heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims. This is a tragedy that hits home all too starkly.
In my own name and on behalf of the European Commission, I would like to express my deepest condolences, as well as our European solidarity with the people of France, Germany and Spain.
Our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends.
