On the 7th February 2023, IURIS met with the Turkish Ambassador at our office in Valletta and we extended our solidarity and deepest sympathy and condolences to the Turkish and Syrian people following the Kahramanmaras earthquake in Türkiye and Syria on the 6th February, which left a devasting amount of casualties and hundreds of thousands of people homeless in the middle of a very cold winter.
