Turkey is concerned with the security conditions and political tensions in Iraq after attacks on Kurdish party bureaus following an assassination of a deputy.
“We fiercely condemn terror attacks on different targets, including the bureaus of the KDP and KYB,” the Foreign Ministry said in a written statement yesterday.
The ministry stressed that the administration of the country should focus on policies that will embrace Iraqi people, respond to their expectations and take necessary steps during such a critical period for Iraq.
“We believe the Iraqi people will be careful in light of provocations that aim for conflict on ethnic and sectarian lines and hope perpetrators of those acts of terror will be brought to justice,” the statement said.
Turkey was ready to help those wounded by the attacks, the ministry added.
