ANKARA: Attacks like the car bombing in Ankara will only bolster Turkey's resolve in fighting terrorism and it will never give up the right to defend itself, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday.

In a statement hours after a car bombing killed 34 people in the capital city, Erdogan said terrorist organisations were targeting civilians because they were losing their struggle against the security forces.

Turkey had become a target because of regional instability in recent years, he said.

Mir Ali | 5 years ago | Reply Erdogan needs to step outside... he has done more damage to Turkey's image than the development.
IBN E ASHFAQUE | 5 years ago | Reply Those living in glass houses should not throw stones at other houses. This was bound to happen. I wish the leadership of Turkey was more focused on the welfare of its own citizens than involving themselves with their neighbor's affairs. May Allah guide us all.
