TUSIAD President Yalcindag also made these statements to the press yesterday with regards to Sunday's PKK ambush near Sirnak:
"In our nation, such a painful event is being experienced--that is terror--that today we find that it has covered all other topics like some sort of fog. As TUSIAD members, we condemn this terror strongly. We hope that Turkey can be relieved of this horror as soon as possible. I think that what will help us is to stand together as the people of the nation, to remain calm, to rise above our pain, and to find solutions."
