Azerbaijan condemns killing of a Turkish diplomat in Erbil

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan has condemned the killing of a Turkish diplomat in Erbil.

"We strongly condemn killing of a Turkish diplomat in Erbil & present our condolences to the family of the victim," wrote an official Twitter account of the Foreign Ministry of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Note that a Turkish diplomat was among two people shot dead on Wednesday in Irbil, the capital of Iraq's Kurdistan Region. The victims, who were eating at a restaurant when gunmen opened fire, were reportedly Turkey's deputy consul in the city and an Iraqi civilian. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the "heinous attack".
