The United States condemns the assassination in Ankara of Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones, with the Russian people, and with all the other victims who were injured in this attack and their families.  We stand ready to offer any assistance that may be required to Russia and Turkey as they investigate this despicable attack, which was, as Secretary Kerry noted, also an assault on the right of all diplomats to safely and securely advance and represent their nations around the world.
