Statement of Condolence on the Bombings in Turkey

As delivered by Ambassador Ian Kelly
to the Permanent Council, Vienna
May 14, 2013

The United States condemns these recent car bombings and we stand with our ally, Turkey. This terrible incident strikes many of us personally, including myself, having worked in Turkey and of course working closely with our colleagues here in Vienna. Our thoughts are with the wounded and we extend our deepest sympathies to the families of the victims as well.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
