Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 10.07.2017

We welcome the successful completion of the military operation conducted since October 2016 for the liberation of Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, which has been under the occupation of DEASH terrorist organization since June 2014.



On this occasion, we share the sufferings of the people of Mosul, composed of different religious, sectarian and ethnic groups who are among the greatest victims in Iraq of the atrocities of DEASH which has also targeted our country with its brutal terrorist acts.



We emphasize that, as in the past, Turkey will continue to stand by the people of Mosul in the post-DEASH period.



In the upcoming period, we are ready to contribute to the reconstruction efforts of Mosul and to the elimination of the conditions that led to the emergence of DEASH and other radical organizations.
