Turkish Soldiers Killed By Armed Kurdish Group

Ban deplores killing of Turkish soldiers by armed Kurdish group

5 October 2008 – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the killing of 15 Turkish soldiers in the latest attack attributed to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), an armed group operating out of northern Iraq.

“He expresses once again his deepest sympathies with the Government and people of Turkey in the face of terrorist violence,” Mr. Ban's spokesperson said in a statement issued last night in response to the attack, which took place on Friday afternoon.

“He urges continued cooperation between the Governments of Turkey and Iraq to address this threat and to promote peace and stability along their border.”
