Press Release Regarding The Terrorist Attack In Pakistan , 09.07.2010

We strongly condemn the suicide attack which took place today (9 July) in Mohmand Agency in the city of Peshawar. Terrorists who have been attacking venues where people gather, such as religious sites and market places, targeted this time those who were queueing for wheelchairs. Terrorists by their methods are forcing the limits of atrocity.

Turkey wholeheartedly believes that Pakistan will overcome the difficulties with the unity and common will of all segments of its society. To that effect, it is essential that democratic Pakistan’s efforts are vigorously supported by the international community.

On this sad occasion, we once again express our strong feelings of solidarity with the friendly government and people of Pakistan. We sincerely share the grief of the Pakistani people.

Turkey wishes mercy upon those innocent people who lost their lives, conveys condolences to the bereaved families of the victims and wishes speedy recovery to those injured.
