I strongly condemn today’s brutal terrorist attack at the heart of Istanbul’s tourist district.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg meets the press following the extraordinary ambassadorial meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission

I extend my deepest condolences to the families of the victims. My thoughts are with those injured, with the Turkish people, and with all the other nations affected.

There can be no justification for such attacks. All NATO Allies stand united in the fight against all forms of terrorism.
