I condemn in the strongest possible terms the brutal bomb attack in Ankara today. I extend my sincere condolences to the victims and their loved ones. The attack on a peaceful march cynically exploits a sensitive moment for Turkey and the region. The European Union stands side by side with Turkey, its people and authorities in its efforts against terrorism and for reconciliation.
