We strongly condemn the atrocious terrorist attacks which took place on 14th of July during the French National Day evening celebrations in Nice, France that took the lives of dozens of innocent people.  We deeply share the grief of the French people.

We would like to reiterate our belief that these inhuman and nonsense terror attacks that take place in various parts of the world will soon come to an end.  It is in no way possible to accept and perceive the acts of terror as a part of our daily lives. The environment of apprehension, fear and anxiety attempted to be created by these acts of terror can only come to an end through common action by all countries. For this aim, everyone must do what is necessary on their part.

We would like to extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to the families of those who were killed, injured or affected in the malicious attack. In order to show our solidarity with the French people, we declare 1 day of national mourning in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
