While offering deep condolences to the bereaved families, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said he was confident Kenya "will have the strength and resilience to deal with this tragedy and respond firmly to the forces of terror".
"We stand ready to assist you in your efforts," the prime minister said.
"I was deeply shocked and saddened by the brutal terror attack yesterday on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. This incident is a stark reminder that the persisting menace of terrorism remains a formidable challenge that calls for a concerted and sustained response from the global community. India condemns in the strongest terms this heinous and senseless assault, which has snuffed out so many innocent lives, including nationals of both our countries," Singh wrote.
