Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement and said, "In all its contacts at multilateral, regional and bilateral levels, Turkey has been stressing in the strongest terms that terrorism should be condemned regardless of its sources and pretexts, and be considered a crime against humanity. Turkey once again underlines the vital importance of effective international cooperation and solidarity in the fight against terrorism."
The ministry said that Turkey extended its condolences to the families of the victims and the government and people of Algeria, and wished speedy recovery to those wounded.
