Pakistan’s foreign minister offers condolences to Türkiye over Istanbul terror attack

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Mevlut Cavusoglu had the discussion in a telephone call, the ministry said in a statement.

Zardari wrote Sunday on Twitter: “Deeply saddened at precious loss of life in explosion at the iconic Taksim square in Istanbul, today.”

“We stand in complete solidarity with our Turkish brethren in this hour of grief and offer our sincerest condolences to the bereaved families & brotherly people of Turkiye,” he added.

At least six people were killed and 81 injured in a bomb blast, which the Turkish government said was carried out by the YPG/PKK terror group.
