Dear Mr. President,
We were deeply saddened by the news of a ruthless explosion during a wedding ceremony that resulted in heavy casualties and injuries in Gaziantep province.
We are extremely outraged by this horrible tragedy and other terror acts treacherously committed in your country, and consider it important and necessary to carry out a joint, consistent and resolute struggle against terrorism and all its manifestations.
On behalf of the people of Azerbaijan and on my own behalf, I extend my deep condolences to you, the bereaved families, the loved ones of those who died and the brotherly people of Turkey, and wish the injured the swiftest possible recovery.
May Allah rest the souls of the dead in peace!
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Baku, August 21, 2016.
