Ankara says European countries insincere in fighting terrorism

European countries are insincere in fighting terrorism, the TRT Haber news channel quoted Ibrahim Kalin, spokesperson for Turkey's presidential administration, as saying June 8.

European countries should really support Turkey in fighting terrorism rather than simply expressing regrets, according to Kalin.

"The latest developments in Turkey showed that Ankara shouldn't make concessions for terrorists," he added.

Turkey faced two terrorist attacks leaving a total of 15 dead and around 80 injured on June 7 and June 8.

The Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) terrorist group stands behind those terrorist attacks, according to the preliminary data.

The conflict between Turkey and the PKK, which demands the creation of an independent Kurdish state, has continued for over 25 years and has claimed more than 40,000 lives. The UN and the European Union listed the PKK as a terrorist organization.
