We are saddened by the killing of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh as a result of an armed attack on 27 November in Tehran. We condemn this heinous murder and extend our condolences to the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the family of the deceased.

Turkey is against all attempts aiming at undermining peace and tranquility in the region as well as terrorism in all its forms regardless of its perpetrator or target.

In this vein, we hope that the perpetrators of the attack will be identified and held accountable before justice. We also call on all parties to act in common sense and restraint and refrain from attempts that could lead to escalation in the region.
