Press Release Regarding The Terrorist Bombing Attacks In Iraq , 02.01.2017

No: 2, 2 January 2017

We have learnt that according to initial reports, 50 people lost their lives and many were injured in the terrorist attacks perpetrated today (2 January) in various parts of Iraq’s capital Baghdad. We strongly condemn these terrorist attacks. We wish God’s mercy upon those who lost their lives, speedy recovery to the wounded.

Turkey, which is targeted by the terrorist organizations and lost its innocent citizens in such heinous attacks, is one of the foremost countries comprehending the grief of Iraqi people.

We are convinced that such heinous attacks cannot intimidate the Government and the people of Iraq. The will and determination of Turkey and Iraq in cooperating against terrorism will be further strengthened.
