President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the Paris attacks on Twitter and sent condolences to his French counterpart, Franandcois Hollande, and the French people.
Turkey, which shares a 900-kilometer (560-mile) border with Syria, opened its air bases in July to the US-led coalition against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and is no stranger to threats from the group.
Two suicide bombers with suspected links to ISIL attacked a pro-Kurdish rally in the capital Ankara in October, killing around 100 people in the worst attack of its kind on Turkish soil.
Critics say Turkey woke up late to the threat. The NATO member country has come under criticism for failing to do more in the earlier stages of Syriaand’s war to stop foreign jihadists crossing its territory and joining the ranks of ISIL, a charge Ankara denies.
