Press Release Regarding The Cooperation Between India And Pakistan , 27.01.2009

Turkey follows with appreciation the increasing cooperation between India and Pakistan to apprehend the perpetrators of the recent terrorist attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai and bring them to justice.

There are various terrorist threats and social and economic challenges that endanger the stability of South Asia. The importance of joint actions to overcome these problems is increasing. Obviously, the prerequisite to this is to avoid tensions and to focus on cooperation. There is no doubt that behavior contrary to this would only serve the aims of perpetrators of terrorism.

Turkey will continue to support and contribute to efforts towards preserving peace and stability in South Asia.
