“We express our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the Turkish Consulate General employee who was killed today in the heinous attack in Erbil. We condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms,” the U.S. Embassy in Turkey said on Twitter.

The Embassy of Pakistan in Turkey also offered condolences.

“Deepest condolences at the martyrdom of the Turkish Consulate official in Erbil in a heinous attack earlier today; the attack must be investigated and perpetrators must be brought to justice,” the embassy said on Twitter.
