Turkey condemns bomb attacks on Iraqi Turkmen

Turkey has condemned Wednesday bomb attacks on ethnic Turkmen in Kirkuk, northern Iraq in which 10 people were injured.

“We condemn the bomb attacks on Turkmen-populated neighborhoods of Kirkuk, including a children’s hospital. We wish a quick recovery to the many wounded Turkmens,” said Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy on Thursday.

“We stress our utmost sensitivity to the safety and security of our Turkmen brethren, who constitute a safeguard for Iraq’s territorial integrity,” he added.

“The government of Iraq should take necessary security measures and foil internal and external groups aiming to destabilize Iraq by creating a new fait accompli in Kirkuk.”

At least 10 people were injured in four bombings in the oil-rich city of Kirkuk on Wednesday.
