The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr Charles Flanagan T.D., has strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Ankara on 10 October and expressed his sympathy to the victims and their loved ones.

Speaking from Belfast where he is co-chairing the ongoing political talks, Minister Flanagan said:

“I strongly condemn the appalling attack that took place at the weekend in Ankara. It was an incident of savage brutality, all the more shocking as it occurred at a public demonstration in support of peace.
