CHP needs to be careful regarding statements on coup attempt: Turkish PM
ANKARAPrime Minister Binali Yıldırım has criticized the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) over the latter’s remarks regarding victimizations since the failed July 15 coup attempt, complaining that the CHP emphasizes the government’s post-coup attempt measures more than it mentions the thwarted military coup.
“The actual victims of July 15 are the families of the martyrs and the veterans. The victims are children of this country, whose futures were threatened by the coup attempt. If you ignore all of this and keep talking about the 1 percent that have been dismissed since then, this has nothing to do with goodwill or good intentions,” he added.
Yıldırım claimed that the CHP’s emphasis “intentionally or non-intentionally” supported the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ), believed to have been behind the coup attempt.
