We have received with deep regret the information of the terrorist attacks in the capital city of Turkey, Ankara where 97 citizens lost their lives and hundreds were wounded. We share the grief and sorrow with the Turkish nation and convey our condolences to the families of the victims.
In these difficult moments for the whole nation, we as International Balkan University, from the heart of Balkans in Skopje raise our voice against the terrorist attacks on the Turkish society and join forces with all people who loudly call upon action against the dark minds who spread fear and endanger the so much needed peace and stability in all corners of the world.
Without any doubt, we deeply believe that the democracy of the Turkish state and the will of the Turkish nation will triumph over terrorism. We remain convinced that Turkey and the Turkish nation will come out stronger and more united from this terrible tragedy and we are committed to serve to the sacred values of brotherhood and solidarity with the Turkish people.
