Erdogan: West supports coup plotter, terrorists

Turkey’s President Rejeb Tayyib Erdogan has unleashed his fiercest verbal attack against the country’s Western allies for the first time since the failed coup in Mid-July. He says the West is supporting the coup plotters.

Erdogan particularly criticized the United States questioning the possibility of a strategic partnership between Washington and Ankara if America refuses to extradite US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen.

The Turkish president said the plot was hatched outside Turkey. According to Erdogan those who were thought to be Ankara’s friends stood by the putschists and terrorists. The Turkish president vowed to have no mercy on those who tried to unseat him.

Erdogan also talked about quick implementation of economic reforms, reconstruction of the intelligence apparatus and the army.
