Turkey has strongly condemned the terrorist attack that killed at least 84 people in Nice during the French National Day celebrations, offering solidarity with France and other nations in the fight against global terrorism.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan strongly condemned the attack, which he described as “barbarous,” while also extending his condolences to the families of the victims and the French nation.
“As a country which has been subjected to many terror attacks, we understand the feelings of France and the French nation very well. This barbarous attack, which has been evaluated as a terror attack, has once again revealed the necessity of a determined and consistent fight against terrorism,” Erdoğan said in a written message of solidarity.
The president also added that anyone who acted in an ambivalent manner against terror had to take the necessary lessons from the recent attack, saying that terror has no religion, race or nationality.
“I strongly condemn the cowardly terrorist attack that ensanguined Nice on the [French] National Day. Always on the side of the states of the world in the fight against international terrorism, Turkey shares the pain of the people of France,” said Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım in a Twitter message, which he tweeted in French.
