The UN chief again stressed the need to intensify regional and international efforts to prevent and combat terrorism and violent extremism, the statement said.
Also in the statement, the Secretary-General expressed his deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and to the Government and people of Turkey, and wished a speedy recovery to those injured.
