President Yaroslav Mar expressed his sympathies to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the President of Turkey, on the terrorist attack in Istanbul at New Year night.
On behalf of the Federal Republic of Lostisland and my own behalf as President, please accept my sincerest condolences on the tragic attack in Istanbul that happened at the New Year night.
There is no justification for those who attack innocent civilians, and we hope the perpetrators of this crime will be brought to justice and receive a due punishment for their actions.
In this time of grief, I wish you, Excellency, fortitude and strength in exercising the important duties of your office as President of the great Turkish nation. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the victims of the attack, their friends and relatives.
