Bulgarian head of state President Rossen Plevneliev has sent condolences to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdoğan after the February 17 bomb blast in Ankara which left 28 people dead and dozens injured, the President’s media office said.

The news of the terrorist attack had left him shocked, Plevneliev said, according to the February 18 statement.

“There is no cause that can justify such a barbaric and inhuman act,” Plevneliev said, adding that he was confident in the professionalism of the Turkish investigating authorities and hoped that very soon the organisers and perpetrators of the bombing would be apprehended and punished to the fullest extent of the law.
