JOINT DECLARATION OF GRAND NATIONAL ASSEMBLY OF TURKEY


28.02.2020

On the night of February 27, 2020, 33 Turkish soldiers were martyred and 32 were injured in the treacherous attack on the convoy of the Turkish Armed Forces in the Idlib de-escalation zone in Syria. We are in deep sorrow. Our condolences to our nation.

As the political party groups that signed below in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey where the will of our nation is manifested, we strongly and vehemently condemn this cowardly and atrocious attack. We state that the solution should be through political means based on international law, in order to prevent humanitarian crisis in the region, provided that our right to respond to the attacks against our soldiers is reserved.

It is our belief that the Heroic Turkish Army will continue to successfully carry out the tasks assigned by the Grand National Assembly of Turkey as it has always been.

Reserving the differences regarding political parties’ policies, we reiterate to our dear nation and to the international community, our determination to fulfill the responsibility of democratic representation entrusted to us with a common understanding in the direction of high principles.
