Efkan Ala speaks at the ambassadors' conference in Ankara, Jan. 16. DHA photoTurkey faces coup d’état attempts whenever it makes economic progress and takes significant steps to resolve its major problems such as terror, Interior Minister Efkan Ala has said, stressing that ambassadors should tell their colleagues in foreign capitals “the truth” about recent developments in Turkey.
“I do not have the heart to say this, but Turkey encounters various coup attempts whenever it reaches significant economic achievements,” Ala said Jan. 16, speaking at the Ambassadors’ Conference.
“Through the peace process, our expectation from you is to make attempts to remove international disinformation and speak about the democratization in Turkey,” he stated.
“We should not allow black propaganda that we don’t deserve to persist; on the contrary, we are in a time of good progress,” Ala added.
Addressing ambassadors, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ spoke about the details of the most recent “democratization package,” which Erdoğan announced last year, emphasizing that the government would take further steps.
