Presidential spokesperson Kalın slams Newsweek article on Turkey

Turkey’s presidential spokesperson İbrahim Kalın Aug. 4 called an article by U.S.-based Newsweek magazine “one of the worst pieces on Turkey”.

“PKK and Gulenist/FETÖ propaganda presented as facts and ideological paranoia as analysis,” Kalın said in a tweet, referring to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and the Fethullahist Terror Organization, two organizations listed as terrorist entities by Turkey.

“Now the June 24 elections are over, is Newsweek calling for another coup attempt in Turkey?” Kalın asked, referring to the defeated coup attempt in 2016, which was widely believed to have carried out by U.S.-based Fethullah Gülen and his followers.

The Newsweek article that Kalın slammed was an opinion piece penned by Jonathan Wachtel and Albert Wachtel.
