Turkey's Foreign Ministry has strongly condemned the death of a Turkish shepherd at the Armenian border.

"There is no valid explanation for the excessive use of Armenian force in such an ordinary event," said the ministry in a statement.

The death of the shepherd, named Mustafa Ulker, following his violation of the border 'just because of a harmless reason' was strongly condemned by the ministry.

After Ulker crossed the border in order to move the herd of cattle grazing on the pastures, he was shot dead by Armenian forces.

The necessary diplomatic attempts have been carried out concerning the matter, the ministry said.
