Polish president Andrzej Duda has send his condolences to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdoğan over Saturday morning’s terrorist attacks in the Turkish capital Ankara which claimed the lives of 95 people.
“I was deeply moved by the news of the terrorist attack in the Turkish capital, which killed so many innocent people,” Duda said in a message published on his website in the aftermath of the attack. “We are all fiercely opposed to this brutal, barbaric act and we stand in solidarity with the people of Turkey,” he said.
The explosions rocked the city yesterday (10.10.15) as crowds gathered for a peace rally by pro-Kurdish and left-wing activists in front of the city’s train station.
In the meantime, the Polish foreign ministry upheld its travel warning issued against travelling to Turkey. Travellers are advised to exercise caution when travelling to major cities or tourist destinations and are asked to avoid gatherings of large crowds.
