Washington responds to Ankara’s accusations that it is behind the coup attempt in Turkey

Navin Rasho –

The United States has responded to accusations by Turkey’s Interior Minister, “Suleyman Suilo”, that it was behind the 2016 coup attempt in Turkey.

“The United States did not participate in the 2016 coup attempt in Turkey and immediately condemned it,” the State Department said in a statement released Late Thursday in response to “Soilo’s statement”. Recent allegations that the contrary were made by a senior Turkish official are completely false.”

“These and other irresponsible and baseless statements about U.S. responsibility for events in Turkey are inconsistent with its status as a NATO ally and strategic partner of the United States,” the department said.

Speaking to” Hurriyet” Newspaper, Turkish Interior Minister” Suleyman Soilo” claimed that the United States had managed a coup attempt against power in Turkey in 2016.
