Aleksandr Lukashenko expresses condolences to Turkey President over terrorist attack victims

    Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko has expressed condolences to Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, families and friends of the victims of the terrorist attack in Istanbul.

    The head of state noted that it is with huge pain that people in Belarus have learned the news about the deathly terrorist attack in Istanbul on New Year’s Eve. “We are shocked by the cynicism and cruelty of this heinous crime,” the message of condolences reads.

Such crimes require resolute responses and solidarity,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.
