Greece offers condolences, solidarity to Turkey after deadly bombings in Reyhanli

Greek Foreign Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos expressed sympathy and support for Turkey on Sunday, hours after a double car bombing killed 46 people in Reyhanli, a town near the border with Syria.

“We express our abhorrence and unequivocal condemnation of the terrorist bombing attacks,” said Avramopoulos in a statement. “We are all in solidarity with one another in the war on terror.”

On Sunday, Turkey accused a group with links to Syrian intelligence of carrying out the bombings and said it was time for the world to act against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

“We express our condolences to the families of the victims, our solidarity with and support for the Turkish people in these difficult hours,” added Avramopoulos.
