Turkey to save ties with Kyrgyzstan from shadow of FETÖ, says Erdoğan
ANKARA – Anadolu Agency
"We are resolute in further enhancing our relations in the upcoming period while saving it from the shadow of FETÖ," Erdoğan said at a ceremony at Manas University in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek.
Erdoğan warned Kyrgyzstan about FETÖ, saying it is a "treacherous and sneaky" organization.
FETÖ and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gülen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people dead and nearly 2,200 injured.
Ankara also accuses FETÖ of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
