We are deeply saddened by the barbarous terror attack that occurred yesterday in Istanbul. Such senseless violence could never be rationalized by any cause. We were further saddened to hear of another attack today.

We wish speedy recovery to the injured and extend condolences to the family & friends of those who lost their lives.

We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of those killed in the recent violence in Aktobe, Kazakhstan. We wish a quick and full recovery to those injured.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.

As delivered by Ambassador Daniel B. Baer to the Permanent Council, Vienna
