We strongly condemn the terrorist attack which targeted people who had gathered for a peace rally, which took place in Ankara on October 10, 2015.
We send our deepest condolences to the families, relatives and friends of our citizens who lost their lives in this inhumane attack and wish a speedy recovery to those who were wounded. May the mercy of God be upon the deceased.
We, like everyone who wants to live in peace and democracy, call on the authorities to stop terrorism and all forms of violence immediately.
We call on all layers of society, in particular authorities and institutions, to take responsibility to maintain peace in our country as soon as possible.
