PES condemns terrorist attack at Atatürk International Airport in the strongest possible terms


The Party of European Socialists condemns the terrorist attack at the Atatürk International Airport. PES President Sergei Stanishev said: “I condemn in the strongest possible terms the barbaric attack at the airport of Istanbul that has caused a horrible number of dead and injured. The sole responsibility lies with the perpetrators. I would like to send our condolences to the families and friends of the dead and to wish a good recovery to the injured”.

PES finds this attack a sad reminder that terrorism has no boundaries.
Stanishev said: “Terrorism affects us all - in Brussels, in Dalori, in Lahore, in Kabul or in Orlando. Today in Istanbul. Now, more than ever, we have to work together to fight it. A stronger international cooperation and intelligence sharing is essential in order to fight international terrorist networks. “
