Hungary Condemns Terrorist Attack In Istanbul
Hungary’s Foreign Ministry condemned the terrorist attack in Istanbul in a statement issued on Sunday. The security of the European Union starts with the stability of Turkey, thus any such attack is one against the EU, too, said the ministry’s press chief, Tamás Menczer.

“We extend our sympathies to the bereaved and wish a speedy recovery to those injured. We also assure Turkey that Hungary stands with it in the fight against terrorism,” he said.

“Obviously, the fight against terrorist organisations must continue, without discrimination,” he added.

Two explosions near a football stadium in Istanbul late Saturday killed at least 29 people and injured 166. The Foreign Ministry said it was unaware of any Hungarians among the victims.
