Qa-62, 3 July 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Statement Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs Of The Arab Republic Of Egypt Dated 3 July 2020 Concerning Our Claw-eagle And Claw-tiger Operations In North Iraq

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 04.07.2020

We reject the statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Arab Republic of Egypt, which condemns the Operations "Claw-Eagle" and "Claw-Tiger" targeting PKK that has been terrorizing our citizens and the Iraqis from its hideouts in northern Iraq for decades and accuses our country as the source of regional instability.

Denouncement of our counter terrorism operations by those who have overthrown their elected government and have threatened to intervene in Libya to support another coup plotter Hafter, is tragicomic.

Such irresponsible statements are attempts that serve PKK terrorists, rather than the brotherly people of Iraq whom we have always supported.

It should be kept in mind that, PKK terrorist organization also threatens the stability, security and territorial integrity of Iraq.

As Turkey, we are committed to standing by the Iraqi people whose fundamental rights have been usurped by the PKK terrorist organization and its supporters, and to fighting against terrorism with determination.

Atatürk
