I am shocked by the news of the terrorist attack on Istanbul’s Ataturk airport. My deepest condolences to the people of Turkey, especially to the families and victims of this senseless attack on innocent lives. Malaysia condemns this heinous act in the strongest terms.
This serves as yet another reminder to the need for heightened intelligence cooperation in the war on terror.
Malaysia stands firm and ready to unite with all countries in the fight against the scourge of terrorism. I strongly urge Muslim nations to unite and increase cooperation, especially in condemning and combating the acts of terror by those who blaspheme the name of Islam.
Even more so today, the message of Islam as a religion of peace, justice and inclusivity needs to be spread far and wide.
So far, there have been no reports of any Malaysian casualties but the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Please contact the Embassy of Malaysia in Ankara +(90)312-4463547 or +(90)312-4463548 for further enquiries.
