Foreign Ministry announcement on the assassination of Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov in Ankara

Tuesday, 20 December 2016

We unequivocally condemn today's terrorist murderous attack on the Russian Ambassador in Ankara, Andrey Karlov.

This is a barbaric act that caused the tragic death of a diplomat, whose vocation is by definition to serve the promotion of peace and dialogue.

We remain appalled by this murderous act whose aim was to provoke tension and regional destabilisation.

We address our sincere condolences to the Russian government and the Russian diplomat's family.
