He said, “It has been confirmed that no terrorist organization will be allowed to exist and operate targeting our borders, cities, citizens, and security forces in the region, and that the necessary steps will be taken to achieve this.”
He pointed out that the Turkish security forces attach importance to the principle of working with full devotion to national and international law, human rights and conscience, in their heroic war against terrorism.
