IMPORTANT: IPSA Statement on Security in Istanbul

''Following the recent terrorist attack in Istanbul, the organizing committee of the 2016 Istanbul World Congress, and the IPSA Secretariat, wish to emphasize that the Turkish Government and the General Directorate of Security in Istanbul have promptly taken a wide range of measures in order to ensure the safety of foreign guests. The Istanbul Congress Center is no exception to this. It is also worth noting that most countries have not changed their existing travel advisories for Turkey. The IPSA Secretariat would like to reassure everyone that it remains in constant contact with the Local Organizing Committee in order to monitor closely the situation in Turkey and Istanbul.

We invite current participants to consult, on a regular basis, their respective national travel advisories for Turkey, in order to be kept informed of any changing situation.''
