On behalf of the Norwegian people, the Embassy would like to thank you warmly for your expressed support regarding the terrible crimes in Oslo and on Utøya on Friday 22 July.  At the Norwegian Embassy  in Ankara we are most grateful and moved by all the condolences and warm messages received from the Turkish people and the international community in Turkey. I can assure you that all of them will be conveyed to Oslo and the Norwegian people.

Norway finds itself in deep grief after the attack on innocent young people and the attack on our democracy. We are deeply shocked by the scale of this National catastrophe and we mourn the loss of so many lives.

The Norwegian Foreign minister, Mr. Jonas Gahr Støre, has expressed that politically motivated violence is a threat to our society, however, we cannot accept that this attack will ruin us. Our values and what we believe in will continue to be the backbone of our society. The Minister has said that tomorrow’s Norway will be recognizable, - nobody shall be able to dismantle our values and our democracy.
