We have learned with deep regret about the terrorist attack in Istanbul on the night of 10th December 2016, where 38 citizens lost their lives and more than 150 were wounded. We share the grief and sorrow with the Turkish nation and convey our condolences to the families of the victims, as well as express our hope for fast recovery of the wounded ones.

In these difficult times, all of us at IBU join prayers with the Turkish nation in their plea for peace. Today, more than ever in the history of humanity, the world needs to unite around the common values that bring people together in peace, harmony and prosperity.
