The prime minister met with the Turkish Chief of Staff, Hulusi Akar, at Çankaya Palace at 4:30 pm on Monday, regarding the terror attack. He later gave a press conference at around 5:30 p.m. in Ankara.
In the press conference Davutoğlu called on every political party in Turkey "to stand shoulder to shoulder in the wake of terror attacks", while urging them to use the same kind of 'firm' and 'determined' discourse.
"Whatever the PKK does, they will not thwart our determination to wipe out terrorists from our mountains and cities," said the Turkish PM, once again underlining Turkey's non-compromising stance against terrorism.
"The mountains, plains, plateaus and cities of this country will not be abandoned to the terrorists."
"The goal is clear -- to establish public order and the dominance of legitimate security forces in every corner and every centimeter of Turkey," Davutoğlu said.
Davuoğlu also touched upon the upcoming November 1 elections and stated that they will be carried out "just like in any modern country".
Following the news conference, Davutoğlu met with the CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu at around 7 p.m. at the prime minister's office. The two leaders' meeting lasted about 45 minutes, reported the media outlets.
