Security Council Condemns Turkey Terror Attack

The United Nations Security Council condemned on Monday ‘in the strongest terms’ the car bombs that killed at least 46 people in the Turkish town of Reyhanli on Saturday.

The 15-member Council reiterated that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that “any acts of terrorism are criminal unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.”

The Council stressed its determination to combat all forms of terrorism, in accordance with its responsibilities under the United Nations Charter, and urged member states to ensure that anti-terrorism measures comply with international law, in particular international human rights, refugee and humanitarian law.
