International community condemns Taksim attacks

2 November 2010, Tuesday /TODAY’S ZAMAN
Leaders of various foreign countries have been releasing messages condemning Saturday’s suicide bombing in Taksim that left 32 people, about half of whom were police officers, injured.
International reactions continued to pour in over the suicide attack as European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek has said he strongly condemned the attack. “İstanbul’s center is not an arena of war. Terrorism will never prevail against democratic values and democratic society,” Buzek asserted. He stated that Europe was always behind Turkey in its fight against terrorism, whether separatist, religious or political. The Arab League’s chief, Amr Moussa, condemned the attack, saying it was unacceptable. “Such acts will always be doomed to end in failure and they will serve in no cause,” Egyptian state television quoted Moussa as saying. The United States on Sunday also condemned the attack. “This is a shocking crime and the people of the United States stand in solidarity with our friends, the people of Turkey,” US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a written statement. She also said Washington hoped to see the perpetrators of this crime brought to swift justice and stood ready to offer its assistance and support to Ankara.
