Statement by OECD Secretary-General Gurría on Attack in Turkey

 

29/6/2016 - “I would like to convey my sincerest condolences following the attack at Istanbul Ataturk airport last night.

 

I have just written to President Erdoğan. We are thinking of those who lost their lives and their families, as well as the many others affected by this tragedy.

 

Turkey, an OECD member country, has endured several attacks in recent times. Each of these deeds is an offense to our collective freedoms, values and way of living. We categorically condemn these terrible acts. Our sympathies are with the people of Turkey and we hope that they may take some solace in knowing that they can count on our unmitigated support.”
