Press Release Regarding The Incidents In Guinea , 01.10.2009

We would like to express our grief and condemn the incidents that took place in Guinea on Monday the September 28th, which instigated more than one hundred civilian fatalities, and more than one thousand civilian casualties.

We hope the political transition process in Guinea to be achieved problem-free, peacefully and democratically. Peace and stability of Guinea bears as much importance for the countries of the region as for the people of Guinea.

Turkey is ready to offer required assistance to Guinea during this process.
