We, the leaders of the European Union, strongly condemn yesterday's terrorist attack in Ankara.

We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims and express our solidarity with the people of Turkey.

Acts of terrorism, by whomever and wherever they take place, are always unacceptable. The European Union and its Member States will step up all efforts to counter this scourge, in cooperation with partners.
