No: 234, 8 July 2014

Recently, it is observed that some media outlets publish news regarding the processes about detained Turkish citizens in Mosul.

Such news, containing speculative information and consequently damaging the meticulous efforts exerted by our relevant institutions, should not be taken seriously.

Our Ministry is regularly publishing its press releases concerning the developments in Iraq. Therefore, it would be appropriate if only the official releases are taken as relevant.
