Ethiopian ambassador: Attack on Turkish Embassy "unacceptable"

(July 31, 2013, (Ankara))--Ethiopia's Ambassador in Ankara Mulatu Teshome Wirtu has said, "What was the Turkish Embassy doing there? Helping Somali people return to their normal lives. Terrorists are enemies of life, peace, stability and democracy. Terrorists don't like tranquility."

Wirtu evaluated the attack on the Turkish Embassy in Somalia and Turkey-Ethiopia relations to Anadolu Agency. Defining the attack on the Turkish Embassy as "unacceptable," Wirtu said terrorists aimed at ruining relations of friendly states.

Stating that people resuming their lives under normal conditions wouldn't be involved with violence and illegal activities, however, unemployment, poverty and lack of education helped terror organizations survive.

Wirtu said the destiny of the state began to change following Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit and added, "Turkey's helping hand has provided stability in Somalia for about two years. Somalia is unable to stand on its own feet without the help of the international society. Support needs to continue for the stability of Somalia." Read more from Anatolia News Agency »
