21.08.2016 - Press release

Commenting on the attack in Turkey, Foreign Minister Steinmeier issued the following statement on Sunday (21 August 2016)

Turkey has been shocked by another horrific attack. Once again, we are seeing the barbaric methods used by terrorists. And yet again, innocent people have died.

A wedding, which should have been a joyful celebration, turned into a nightmare. Our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends. We mourn with them.

No matter who is behind this attack, it is to be condemned in the strongest possible terms. Nothing can justify violence or attacks against innocent people!
