MOSCOW, August 21. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin offered condolences to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan following the terrorist attack in Gaziantep, where dozens Turkish civilians were killed, the Kremlin’s press service said on Sunday.
"The crime, committed in the middle of a wedding party, shocks by its cruelty and cynicism," the Russian president said in a telegram. "Once again we see terrorism would not care for laws of civilized society or the very basic norms of human morality."
Putin said the tragedy once again proved it is necessary to unite realistically efforts of the entire international community in fighting terrorism, and confirmed he is ready for the overwhelming anti-terrorist cooperation with the Turkish counterparts, including following the agreements reached recently in St. Petersburg. Vladimir Putin offered condolences and support to relatives and friends of the victims and wished soonest recovery to the injured, the Kremlin’s press service said.
