ULAANBAATAR, July 15 (Yonhap) -- President Park Geun-hye on Friday condemned what appears to be a terrorist attack in southern France, saying that acts of terrorism cannot be tolerated under any circumstances.

Speaking at the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) summit, the president expressed her condolences to the victims and their grieving families, calling the attack a "heinous" act.

"We need to watch the investigation result, but under any circumstances, acts of terrorism cannot be tolerated," she said.

On Thursday night, at least 77 people were killed when a large truck ran through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France. The driver, who also fired a gun into the crowd, was shot dead by police.
