Baku-APA. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday sent a message to U.S. President Barack Obama, expressing sorrow over the suicide bomb attack on the U.S. embassy in the Turkish capital of Ankara, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

"The terrorist act on the U.S. embassy is also an attack on Turkey. This incident has shown that the continuation and strengthening of the partnership between Turkey and the United States against terrorism is crucial," Erdogan said in his message.

Erdogan said Turkish security forces and intelligence agencies exerted every effort to probe the incident and bring before justice those who were responsible for the attack.

The suicide bomber who killed two people, including himself, and wounded at least another was a member of an outlawed leftist group, Erdogan said.

"The suicide bomber detonated the bomb right after crossing ( the personnel entry) and died in the explosion. A birth mark on his head proved (his identity), but DNA tests will be carried out to make sure. It is clear that he is a member of DHKP/C," Erdogan said during a TV interview with private broadcaster Haberturk.
