İstanbul, Oct 10 () - International organizations and several countries have joined in unison condemnation of two deadly attacks which killed at least 30 people and wounded 126 in the capital city of Ankara on Oct. 10, while expressing solidarity with Turkey.
"I condemn the barbaric attack on peaceful demonstrators in Ankara today. Freedom of assembly is a fundamental pillar of democracy" Thomas Jagland, the secretary general of the top European human rights body, the Council of Europe, said.
Kremlin said in a written statement that Russian Leader Vladimir Putin sent a telegram to his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, expanding his condolences.
In Ankara, both the British Embassy and the U.S. Embassy deplored the attacks in messages swiftly posted to their Twitter account likewise Jagland did.
"We condemn the latest violent attack in Ankara. All of us must stand united against terror," the U.S. Embassy in Turkey said on its official account.
Richard Moore, the British Ambassador to Turkey, preferred to use his personal official Twitter account for voicing his reaction as he said:
"Shocked to see scenes at Ankara bombing. Condolences to the families of those who lost their lives. My thoughts with wounded and their loved ones. Such terrorism is inhuman and never justified under any circumstances. Having lived through 7/7 bombing in London, now is time for calm and measured response by all."
Pakistan, which has deeply-rooted bilateral relations with Turkey, also strongly condemned the attacks which it called as "heinous act of terrorism."
"We extend our heartfelt condolences to the brotherly people and government of Turkey and pray for the speediest recovery of those injured in this abhorrent attack. Pakistan reiterates its condemnation of terrorism in all forms and manifestations. While reaffirming our abiding support and solidarity for the fraternal Turkish nation in their struggle against terrorism, we are certain that Turkey would overcome this scourge with its characteristic resolve and determination" Pakistan's Embassy in Turkey said in a written statement.
