Czech Foreign Ministry condemns murder of Russian diplomat in Turkey


The Czech Foreign Ministry has strongly condemned the murder of the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrej Karlov, saying the attack is a grave violation of the inviolability of diplomatic representatives and an assault on the rules of international law governing the work of diplomats worldwide. The attack is all the more despicable in light of the fact that the mission of diplomats is to seek understanding through peaceful negotiations, the ministry said in a statement published on its web page. The ministry said the Czech Republic would continue to support the war on terror in every way possible.
