German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier condemns attacks on Ataturk airport in Istanbul, saying ‘everything suggests that terrorists have once again hit the Turkish metropolis’

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan: ‘It is clear that this attack is not aimed at achieving any result but only to create propaganda material against our country using simply the blood and pain of innocent people’

Hillary Clinton on Istanbul attack: ‘Terrorists have struck again in the heart of one of our NATO allies… Today’s attack in Istanbul only strengthens our resolve to defeat the forces of terrorism and radical jihadism around the world. And it reminds us that the United States cannot retreat. We must deepen our cooperation with our allies and partners in the Middle East and Europe to take on this threat’

UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond says ‘shocked’ by Istanbul attack, adding, ‘we stand ready to help’

Donald Trump on Istanbul attack: ‘The whole world is stunned and horrified. The terrorist threat has never been greater. Our enemies are brutal and ruthless and will do anything to murder those who do not bend to their will.’
