State­ment by Em­bassy of the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion to the State of Kuwait

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

On De­cem­ber 19, Rus­sian Am­bas­sador Ex­tra­or­di­nary and Plenipo­ten­tiary to Turkey An­drei Karlov was shot dead in a ter­ror­ist attack in Ankara. We con­demn this heinous crime that was com­mit­ted to un­der­mine our col­lec­tive ef­forts to­wards an early po­lit­i­cal set­tle­ment in Syria and the on­go­ing nor­mal­iza­tion of Rus­sian-Turk­ish re­la­tions.

The Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs of the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion ex­pects the Turk­ish author­i­ties to closely co­op­er­ate with the rel­e­vant Rus­sian agen­cies to in­ves­ti­gate the cir­cum­stances of this bar­baric crime, to iden­tify and ap­pre­hend its or­ga­niz­ers and to take ef­fec­tive mea­sures to pro­tect the safety of Rus­sian cit­i­zens, Rus­sian of­fices abroad and their per­son­nel. For our part, we will act in con­junc­tion with the Turk­ish law en­force­ment agen­cies to bring the cul­prits to jus­tice.

Em­bassy of Rus­sia to Kuwait ex­presses deep con­do­lences to the fam­ily and friends of An­drei Karlov, an out­stand­ing Rus­sian diplo­mat. His mem­ory will al­ways re­main in the hearts of his col­leagues and all those who knew him. This tragedy is an in­di­ca­tion that we must re­dou­ble our ef­forts in an un­com­pro­mis­ing strug­gle against all forms of ter­ror­ism. The Book of con­do­lences fol­low­ing the as­sas­si­na­tion of An­drei Karlov will be open at the Em­bassy on De­cem­ber 21, 2016, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Pak­istani busi­ness­man Athsham Al­lahditta thanked the doc­tors, nurses and staff of Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospi­tal for their care dur­ing his treat­ment there. He has been dis­charged from the hospi­tal af­ter two months.
