Security Council meeting

The Security Council is stressing the need to bring to justice those who perpetrate, organize, finance and sponsor acts of terrorism, following a deadly attack in Turkey over the weekend.

In a statement released on Monday, Council members condemned the attack and expressed their sincere condolences to the families of the victims, as well as to the Turkish government and people.

Media reports say 46 people died and dozens more were injured in car bomb explosions on Saturday in the small town of Reyhanli in eastern Turkey, near the border with Syria.

The Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable.
