The United States strongly condemns the attack by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant on the Turkish Consulate in Mosul, Iraq. We join Turkey and the international community in calling for the immediate release of Turkey’s kidnapped diplomatic personnel and citizens, and we stand ready to provide the government of Turkey with any assistance as appropriate.
