Terror in Berlin and murder in Turkey: Condemnations from Bulgaria

Written by on December 20, 2016 in Bulgaria - No comments

Bulgarian politicians have condemned the murder of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov, in Ankara. President Rosen Plevneliev said, there was no legitimate cause that justified radicalism and killing people. The latter had to meet categorical opposition from the democratic community.

Plevneliev said he was seriously concerned about the recent terror attacks and the loss of life in Turkey, a neighbouring country to Bulgaria. The President also expressed his condolences to the family of ambassador Karlov. 

Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov also condemned the murder in the strongest terms, echoing countless condemnations from other governments and the European Union.

Borissov also condemned the terror attack at a Christmas market in Berlin, by calling the event terrible on Twitter. His thoughts were with the families of the victims, he said.

In Berlin, a terrorist had steered a huge truck into the crowd at a Christmas market in the former Western city center, killing twelve people and injuring many more.

The murder of Ambassador Karlov at the opening of an exhibition in Ankara was committed by a security guard.
