"I am appalled by the terrorist attack which took place in Istanbul, killing 39 people and injuring many others as they were peacefully celebrating New Year’s Eve. My deep condolences go to the victims and their families.

I would also like to convey a message of solidarity from the Council of Europe to the Turkish authorities. This Organisation will continue to assist member States in their fight against terrorism. We cannot allow the terrorist message of violence, fear and hate to deflect us from our shared values."
