– Turkey on Tuesday strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a police training center in Pakistan’s Quetta city that left 61 people dead and more than 100 others wounded late Monday, reported Anadolu Agency.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said: “We strongly condemn this heinous terrorist attack that targeted Pakistan’s stability and security.”

Turkey “wishes [Allah’s] mercy upon those who lost their lives,” a speedy recovery to the wounded and conveys its condolences to the Pakistani government and the “brotherly” Pakistani people, the statement added.

“We repeat our belief that the ones who organized the terrorist attack will not be able to achieve their goal to destabilize Pakistan and it will not decrease Pakistan’s determination in the fight against terrorism.

“We confirm that Turkey will maintain its solidarity with brotherly country Pakistan,” the statement added.
