“Resolutely opposing any terrible cycle of terrorism and extremism, Turkmenistan fully supports the world community’s efforts to counteract and eradicate this evil," the TDH cited the statement.

58 concert-goers were killed and at least 500 were injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night in deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The 64-year-old suspect Stephen Paddock sprayed bullets into a crowd attending a country music festival from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, before apparently killing himself, police said.

Paddock has been described by news outlets as a "lone wolf", a "granddad", a "gambler", and a "former accountant", but not a terrorist. Motivation behind Paddock's act is unknown yet.

There has been no link found to international terrorism and no confirmation of mental illness, according to BBC.
