Ankara (AFP)

EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini on Monday called for an "immediate ceasefire" in Turkey's Kurdish-dominated region where the Turkish army is waging a relentless campaign against Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants.

"We call for an immediate ceasefire in the southeast and strongly condemn all kinds of terrorism," Mogherini told a joint press conference with Turkish ministers in Ankara.
