Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President of the Republic of Turkey, after the attack in the Istanbul Atatürk Airport.
H.E. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan
President of the Republic of Turkey
I was shocked and saddened on hearing the news about the tragic attack in the Istanbul Atatürk Airport on Tuesday evening, resulting in the loss of so many innocent lives.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people I extend my condolences and my sympathy to you, Mr. President, and ask you to convey my condolences and sympathy to the families of the victims, to those injured, and to the people of Turkey at this difficult time.
“If there is one piece of advice I would give you today, as King, godfather and grandfather, it is this: Be yourself,” said His Majesty The King in his speech at the luncheon celebrating the confirmation of Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra.
Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra was confirmed today in the Palace Chapel, just as her father, grandfather and great-grandfather were before her.
