(JNS.org) The Turkish government issued a statement condemning the May 24 shooting at the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels.

Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News reported that the country’s foreign ministry expressed its condolences to the families of the victims and promised to support the continued investigation of the attack.

“We want to hope that the attack was not launched with racist motivations and does not have anti-Semitic characteristics,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement Wednesday.

“Otherwise, our concerns in the face of the fatal picture that has emerged in the European parliamentary elections will further increase,” Hurriyet quoted the ministry as saying.
