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. “
