Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said he condemned twin bomb attacks that targeted two Sunni mosques in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli, killing at least 50 people and wounding more than 350.

Speaking to journalists at Rome's Ciampino Airport at the end of his two-day Europe trip with Syria and Egypt high on the agenda, Davutoglu expressed his sorrow about the increasing number of attacks in Lebanon, and condemned the latest one targeting two Sunni mosques in Tripoli.

"Regardless of their sect, all the Lebanese are our brothers," said Davutoglu, announcing that he would talk to outgoing Lebanese Premier Najib Miqati about the attacks.

In addition, according to diplomatic sources, Davutoglu discussed an upcoming intergovernmental summit between Turkey and Italy with his Italian counterpart Emma Bonino, as well as a meeting of 10th Turkish-Italian Forum, co-organized by the Turkish and Italian foreign ministries with an eye to strengthen bilateral dialogue.
