Text size Aa Aa

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reacted immediately to the bombing, issuing an “official statement condemning the attack“

In it he underlined that Turkey’s determination to fight those behind such acts, whether they be from outside Turkey’s borders or not, would only get stronger and that it would not hesitate to exercise its right to self defence.

Turkey’s main opposition CHP leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu tweeted his thoughts saying – “That this country does not deserve such pain.”

While Selahaddin Demirtaş of the pro-Kurdish HDP condemned what he described as “ the cruel attack in Ankara, and may those who died in Ankara rest in peace.”
