No: 195, 19 June 2017, Press Release Regarding The Terrorist Attack Perpetrated In London In The Early Hours Of July 19th, 2017 , 19.06.2017

It is with sorrow that we learned of the terrorist attack perpetrated in the early hours of July 19th in the vicinity of a mosque at the Finsbury Park area, targeting Muslim worshippers leaving the mosque after the night prayers.

We condemn this attack committed during the holy month of Ramadan in the strongest possible terms as it has targeted innocent people, aiming to disrupt the British public order and its peaceful environment, one which is traditionally multicultural and based on mutual respect and tolerance. We convey our sincere condolences to the British people, wish God’s mercy upon the person who lost his life in the attack, patience to his family and speedy recovery for the wounded.

Turkey will maintain her full solidarity and cooperation with the United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism.
