August 21 has been declared the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism by the United Nations in 2018.
V-Europe has organised this commemoration in Belgium for the 2nd consecutive year in accordance with the United Nations.
Didier Reynders, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs in Belgium's caretaker government, presided over the ceremony in Brussels.
Federal Attorney-General Frédéric Van Leeuw quoted the phrase inscribed on the walls of the Maelbeek subway station in memory of the attack perpetrated there on March 22nd, 2016: "Love for all , including those who not know what they do".
"This solidarity between victims is very important and, in some ways, it is the proof that we continue to work to safeguard our democracy and our values, but also to build this humanity that we all need," Vansteenkiste stressed.
