Turkey's foreign ministry summoned the U.S. Ambassador to Ankara on Monday to convey "in the strongest terms" Turkey's reaction to a U.S. statement on the killing of 13 kidnapped Turks by Kurdish militants in northern Iraq, the ministry said, APA reports.

Turkey said on Sunday militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) executed the captives during a military operation against the group. The United States said that it condemned the killings if it was confirmed that responsibility lay with the PKK.
