World Leaders Condemn Deadly Terror Attack on Turkish Wedding

pppppLeaders from around the world condemned the terrorist attack on a wedding ceremony in Gaziantep, southeastern Turkey late Saturday that left 51 victims dead, 69 injured.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Turkey’s neighbor Greece denounced the attack via Twitter.

“We condemn the brutal attack on the Gaziantep wedding and stand with the Turkish people, united versus terror. Our condolences to the families of the victims,” said Greece’s Foreign Ministry on its official account.

U.S. Ambassador in Ankara John Bass condemned the “barbaric attack” in a Twitter post, saying: “We stand by our ally Turkey and pledge to continue to work closely together to defeat the common threat of terrorism.”

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg issued a statement strongly condemning “the string of horrific terrorist attacks” in Turkey.

“We stand united in solidarity with our Turkish Allies in this difficult time. We remain determined to fight terrorism in all its forms,” he said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germany stands by Turkey in the fight against terrorism.

“Our deepest sympathies are with those who lost their loved ones, and victims,” she said in an official letter to Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

French President Francois Hollande said in a statement that he “strongly condemns the despicable terrorist attack in which at least 50 people were killed last night and 100 injured in Gaziantep, Turkey during a wedding.”

“France extends to the authorities and people of Turkey its condolences and sympathy … It stands with all who fight against the scourge of terrorism,” he added.

Pope Francis also offered prayers for the attack’s victims, according to official Vatican Radio.

“Let us pray for the victims and the injured and for the gift of peace for all,” the pope said on Sunday from St. Peter’s Square.

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered condolences for the attack to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan and underlined the importance of international cooperation in fighting terrorism.
