En dépit des appels répétés à la retenue, la situation en matière de sécurité continue à se détériorer dans le Sud-Est de la Turquie. Les autorités turques sont confrontées à d’importantes difficultés en raison de la menace posée par le PKK et par d’autres groupes terroristes à ses frontières. Cependant, il est primordial que la réaction reste maîtrisée et que les répercussions sur la population locale soient évitées. Nous attendons de toutes les parties qu’elles agissent d’une manière proportionnée et qu’elles fassent preuve de retenue.


Despite the repeated calls to restraint, the security situation continues to deteriorate in the southeast of Turkey.

The Turkish authorities are faced with difficult challenges, due to the threat posed by PKK and by other terrorist groups at its borders. But it is crucial to keep the response contained and avoid effects on local population. We expect all parties to act proportionately and demonstrate restraint.
