Press Release Regarding The Terrorist Attacks In Karachi , 05.02.2010

We strongly condemn the heinous terrorist attacks perpetrated today (5 February) in Karachi, the capital of Sindh province of friendly and brotherly Pakistan, against a hospital and a bus carrying passengers to a mourning ritual

These despicable attacks aimed at sabotaging the atmosphere of peace and stability in the country are inhuman acts of the terrorist groups. Terrorism constitutes a crime against humanity. Pakistan’s great sacrifices in the fight against terrorism deserve every appreciation.

On this sad occasion, it is incumbent on us to re-emphasize Turkey’s solidarity with friendly and brotherly government and people of Pakistan. We fully share the grief of our Pakistani brothers and sisters. We wish God’s mercy to those who lost their lives, we express our condolences and wish forbearance to their families and beloved ones, as well as speedy recovery for the wounded.
