The United Nations Security Council has strongly condemned the “heinous and cowardly” terrorist attack at a wedding ceremony in the city of Gaziantep in Turkey on 20 August, during which at least 54 people were killed and over 200 injured.
In a press statement issued yesterday afternoon, the members of the Council also condemned the terrorist attacks that took place over the last week in Turkey, during which several Turkish police officers and civilians were killed. They expressed their deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and to the Turkish Government and they wished a speedy and full recovery to those who were injured.
Reaffirming that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, the Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with Turkey and all other relevant authorities in this regard.
The Council also stressed that those responsible for these killings should be held accountable and urged all States to cooperate actively with all relevant authorities in this regard.
