Det er interessant at EU, ved formannsskapsland Nederland, ikke vil kommentere Beslan før man vet mer om hva som skjedde. Det kan tolkes som en mistanke om at det kanskje var russerne som stormet.
«It is premature now, without knowing the exact situation, to make a judgment on the way the Russian authorities acted,» said Dutch Foreign Minister Bernard Bot, whose country currently holds the European Union (EU) presidency.
«We first have to evaluate the situation with the knowledge of all the details,» he told reporters at the end of the first day of a two-day meeting of EU foreign ministers in the southern Netherlands.
But in a later statement Friday evening Bot said the EU will be seeking an explanation from Moscow.
«All countries in the world need to work together to prevent tragedies like this. But we also would like to know from the Russian authorities how this tragedy could have happened.»
