Baku, July 27, AZERTAC

Türkiye on Wednesday condemned an attack on its Consulate General in Mosul, Iraq that took place earlier in the day, according to Anadolu Agency.
"We condemn this attack, in which no casualties were reported, in the strongest terms and expect those responsible to be brought to justice as soon as possible," said the Turkish Foreign Ministry in a statement.
Calling on Iraqi authorities to fulfill their responsibilities to protect diplomatic and consular missions, Ankara called it "a grave and noteworthy development that this attack was carried out during a UN Security Council meeting held at the request of Iraqi authorities and at a time when our country was unfairly accused and targeted."
"On this occasion, we once again reiterate our call to Iraqi authorities to focus on the fight against terrorism and to put an end to the terrorist presence on their territory which poses a threat to neighboring countries and diplomatic missions," it added, referring to the terrorist PKK.
