I firmly condemn this morning’s terrorist attack targeting a police vehicle in Istanbul, which killed a number of people, including police officers, and injured many others. My thoughts are with the families of the victims and the people of Turkey, struck once again by the scourge of terrorism.

Terrorism seeks to undermine the very values that the North Atlantic Alliance stands for: democracy, individual liberty, human rights and the rule of law. It can never be tolerated or justified.

NATO Allies stand in solidarity with Turkey against the global threat of terrorism.
