A senior Korean foreign ministry official visited the French Embassy in Seoul on Monday to pay tribute to the victims who were killed in last week's truck attack in Nice.

Lim Sung-nam, the country's vice foreign minister, visited the embassy building located in western Seoul earlier in the day and extended condolences to the families of the victims.

In a condolence book, he also wrote that Korea strongly supports the French government for its efforts to root out terrorism and that it will actively join in the global drive to prevent such a tragedy.

French Ambassador to Korea Fabien Penon expressed his gratitude for South Korea's strong support in a meeting with Lim.

At least 84 people were killed and 200 injured in the truck attack in Nice on Thursday (local time). (Yonhap)
