Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 09.06.2018

We have learned with sorrow that according to initial reports at least one person died and 14 people injured as a result of three bomb attacks aimed at civilians in Kirkuk on the night of June 8, 2018. We strongly condemn these terrorist attacks. We wish Allah's mercy upon our Iraqi sister who lost her life and speedy recovery to the wounded.

We observe that some circles, who follow their dark agenda and try to harm the will of peaceful coexistence of the people of Kirkuk, which carries critical importance for the lasting stability overall in Iraq, still continue their attacks despite our warnings. In order to prevent the malicious objectives of these circles and ensure safety of all components of the people of Kirkuk, we expect the relevant Iraqi authorities to take every necessary measures.

On this occasion, we re-emphasize the importance of fair, transparent and immediate evaluation of our kinsmen's legitimate demands, who have been organizing peaceful demonstrations about fraud allegations regarding the elections in Kirkuk.
