Turkey condemned on Monday terrorist attack attempts in Britain in the strongest terms, and announced that it is in solidarity with the British government and people.
Releasing a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, "the attempted terrorist attack which failed after explosive mechanisms were defused in two cars on June 29th, 2007 in London, and the terrorist attack conducted against Glasgow Airport on June 30th, 2007 remind us once again that terrorism is the most primordial international threat.
"Our country that has been fighting against PKK terrorism stresses in all its international, regional and bilateral contacts that, regardless of its roots, causes and alleged motives, terrorism cannot have any justification and should be condemned unreservedly. Turkey describes terrorism as a violation of the most fundamental human right, that is the right to live," it noted.
The Ministry added, "we believe that combating the scourge of terrorism which threatens international peace and security entails a unified, determined and coordinated response. We underline once again that Turkey is in solidarity with the British government and the British people, and condemn these attempts in the strongest terms."
