Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 30.01.2017

No: 32, 30 January 2017

We strongly condemn the attack that took place at the Islamic Cultural Center, which is also used as a mosque, in Quebec City, the capital of Canadian province of Quebec and targeted innocent people who worship at a holy place. We wish God’s mercy upon those who lost their lives and speedy recovery to the wounded.

We believe that the Government of Canada will carry out the investigation regarding the nature of this attack, which took place at a time when Islamophobic rhetoric and actions are on the rapid rise, with the necessary seriousness and sensitivity.

Turkey is in full solidarity with our friend and ally Canada in the face of this heinous attack targeting the peace in Canada where many people from different races and religions live in harmony.
