I am deeply saddened and shocked by the tragic loss of life of so many people on the island of Utoeya and in Oslo.

--Queen Elizabeth II
The loss of life in Norway has been absolutely horrific. It's on a scale, frankly, that is hard to comprehend. The Norwegians are old friends and allies and neighbors of Britain, and I know that everyone in Britain will want to stand with the Norwegian people in the days of sorrow that lie ahead. Also, we'll want to make sure that we learn like others, any lessons there are to learn about how to be more secure against horrific outrages like this. And that's something we can discuss at the National Security Council on Monday. These attacks are a stark reminder of the threat we all face from terrorism. I have called Prime Minister Stoltenberg this evening to express my sincere condolences and to let him know that our thoughts are with the Norwegian people at this tragic time. I have offered Britain's help, including through our close intelligence cooperation.
--David Cameron, UK Prime Minister
I have been in contact with [Norwegian] Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg to deplore what happened and have offered our help if needed.

Our thoughts are with those who have died, the bereaved and those injured.

Pakistan, itself, has suffered enormously from terrorist attacks and fully empathizes with the government and the people of Norway.

I wanted to personally extend my condolences to the people of Norway. It's a reminder that the entire international community holds a stake in preventing this kind of terror from occurring. We have to work cooperatively together both on intelligence and in terms of prevention of these kinds of horrible attacks.
