Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Presidential Administration of Russia Sergei Ivanov visited the Turkish embassy in Moscow on Monday to sign a book of condolences for the victim of Saturday’s bombing in Ankara. Lavrov and Ivanov were greeted by Turkey’s Ambassador to Russia Umit Yardim as they paid their respects. Ivanov expressed his sympathies to Yardim and said that such a “terrorist act” is one more reason to “unite our efforts in combating terrorism.” At least 128 people were killed and more than 200 injured after two explosions rocked the Turkish capital. The bombs targeted the venue of the 'Labour, Peace, Democracy' rally, which was scheduled to begin at 10:00 local time (0700 GMT). The rally was planned by Turkey's biggest trade union in protest against the Turkish government's policy towards the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu announced on Saturday three days of national mourning, and said there was evidence that two suicide bombers had carried out the attacks. Selahattin Demirtas, the co-chair of the People's Democratic Party (HDP), said: "This is not an attack against the unity of our state and nation. This is an attack by our nation against our people." The Turkish state have denied any role in the attack and vowed to bring to terrorists to justice.
