Statement by the Spokesperson on the latest PKK attacks in South-East Turkey

Brussels, 11/08/2016 

Turkey has been again the target of terrorist attacks in both Diyarbakir and Kiziltepe today. We extend our condolences to the families of the victims and wish a speedy recovery to those injured. 

The European Union reiterates its continuing solidarity to Turkey, its government and its people. The Turkish authorities are faced with difficult challenges, due also to the violent acts by PKK, which is on the EU list of terrorist organisations.

A genuine political dialogue in the framework of the Kurdish settlement process brought many positive and promising results in the past: the European Union is convinced it is the only way to achieve a peaceful and sustainable solution.
