American Group Gives Hand Of Friendship To Turkish City

A team of 9 Americans on a diplomatic mission to Turkey came from the American city of Pittsburgh to the Turkish city of Gaziantep in show of solidarity and friendship on Tuesday.

A team of 9 Americans on a diplomatic mission to Turkey came from the American city of Pittsburgh to the Turkish city of Gaziantep in show of solidarity and friendship on Tuesday. Gaziantep was the location of a vicious terrorist bombing over the Ramadan holiday of Eid-al fitr earlier this month which claimed the lives of 9 people and injured 66 others. The American group left red carnations at the spot of the terrorist attack, discussed joint efforts against terror and prayed for the victims of the attack.

The Pittsburgher Americans lead by US Representative Mike Doyle and William Peduto of the Pittsburg city council were accompanied by leading Turkish American leaders Furkan Kosar, Serdar Ayman and Hasan Eygoren as well as other Turkish local and regional authorities including Gaziantep's Mayor Asim Guzelbey.

Dolye condemned terror in all of its forms wherever it occurred explaining, "Terror can happen anywhere in the world. It can happen in our country, it happens everywhere."

Mayor Guzelbey expressed gratitude to the Americans, saying, "We thank this group from Pittsburgh who postponed some of their trip when they heard about this sad occurrence and came to our city."

After the talks of Doyle and Guzelbey, African American Christian religious leader Gleen Greyson prayed for the victims of the bombing.
