Statement by NSC Spokesperson Ned Price on the Terrorist Attack in Turkey

The United States condemns in the strongest terms today’s terrorist attack in Istanbul, Turkey.  This heinous attack occurred in Istanbul’s historic heart, and struck Turks and foreign tourists alike.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of all those who have been killed and with those injured.  We stand together with Turkey, a NATO ally, a strong partner, and a valued member of the Counter-ISIL coalition, in the face of this attack and pledge our ongoing cooperation and support in the fight against terrorism.
