Erdogan: Turkey will not allow new coup attempts

Turkish authorities will not give chances for new coup attempts, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said in connection with the country’s fourth anniversary of the coup attempt in 2016.

Turkish authorities accuse the organization of the opposition Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, which they call FETO (Fethullah terrorist organization), of involvement in the attempted coup in July 2016. In Turkey, more than 80,000 people were arrested after the revolt, and more than 160,000 civil servants, including the military, were dismissed or suspended. Gulen himself, who is in the US, has condemned the coup attempt and denied the charges.

“This was not an ordinary coup. There were big calculations behind it. It was no accident that the Feto putschists targeted our Parliament. Our people stood shoulder to shoulder against the traitors. It was a life-and-death struggle. If they had won, they would not have stopped short of killing the President and members of the government. But we have won, and we will not give any forces a chance to hit our democracy again, ” Erdogan said, speaking in Parliament.

According to him, those who do not take the attempted coup seriously in 2016 “aim to blacken the glorious pages of Turkey’s history.”
