QA-4, 3 March 2023, Statement of the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Tanju Bilgiç, in Response to a Question Regarding the Assassination in Iraq’s Kirkuk Province

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 03.03.2023

We are deeply saddened to learn that Ahmet Tahir, a former officer of the Iraqi Turkmen Front's Security Department, lost his life as a result of an assassination today (3 March) in Kirkuk. We condemn this heinous terrorist attack.

This terrorist act targets not only the peace and security of Turkmens, one of the constituent and primary components of Iraq, but also Iraq’s stability.

We expect the Iraqi authorities to immediately identify the perpetrators of this attack and bring them before justice.

Atatürk
