US denies involvement in Turkey's 2016 coup attempt

51

Despite the statements of the Turkish leadership, the United States completely denies its involvement in the attempted coup in Turkey, which took place in 2016. Washington has nothing to do with these events and, as soon as they happened, officially condemned the military putsch against Erdogan.


This statement was made by the head of the press service of the United States Department of State Ned Price. It was published on the official website of the department.

Unfounded and irresponsible statements about US responsibility for the events in Turkey are incompatible with the status of the Republic of Turkey as a NATO ally and strategic partner of the United States.

Price says in a statement.

The spokesman for the State Department was referring to the statement by Turkish Interior Minister Suleiman Soylu, which he made to the Turkish press. In it, he argues that the United States is behind the failed military takeover.

And on November 8 last year, Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay said that Turkey is in favor of cooperation with the new American administration, but will increase pressure from Washington, demanding the extradition of Islamic opposition preacher Fethullah Gulen, whom official Ankara considers responsible for the attempt to overthrow the government.

Let us recall that in the summer of 2016, only thanks to the help from Russia, President Erdogan was not in the hands of those who participated in the coup attempt.

Experts in Turkey, after the statements of the State Department representative, expressed doubts about the veracity of his words. In particular, it was noted that the United States, by definition, could not be unaware of the coup attempt, because many participants coordinated their actions at the Incirlik airbase, where the US military contingent was (and is still).

        Hkhtoo? Who did it? (C)
        Less than a year later, they began to sculpt excuses.)))) So the power and economic pressure on Erdogan did not pass. It is necessary for the new US administration to look for cracks, to cover up the cracks.

    There, judging by the information about those events, D. Kerry himself, in a conversation with Lavrov, leaked the information, saying that - "The United States will support the events in Turkey that will take place in the coming hours", which clearly indicates that mattress ears were sticking out there indicative and demonstrative. And here these two-faced raccoons traditionally begin to dodge, like - "I'm not me and the horse is not mine")))

        There was one "dark horse" Prime Minister Davutoglu, which, in the event of a successful coup to the Sultan's throne, would probably have perched. It is this "horse" that is now in opposition to Erdogan and predicts his defeat in the next elections.

    Since Turkey is a NATO member, the cooperation does not stop between the countries. Turkey makes only a statement about the involvement of the United States in the failed coup. But then there is no case, which means there is no reinforcement and facts to the statement about the US involvement.

    Of course, the Yankees will deny_ it didn't work out and the goblin is with him. Now they will wriggle, twist, because we do not forget: Turkey, as a NATO member, is the spear of this gang aimed at the entire Black Sea and Caspian regions of the Russian Federation.

      Well, suppose it's not the United States, then who ?? No one pulled such impudence. Everyone would have forgotten. Of course, the United States could rake in the heat with someone else's hands, but it would not be swept away and it was possible to excuse it due to the lack of direct facts.

    Erdogan himself prepared this conspiracy, successfully suppressed it, cleared the army ranks of people inconvenient for him, strengthened his power. Perhaps the US knew that the Turkish military was preparing a rebellion, but did not know that Erdogan himself was behind the rebellion.

    Who would have thought - they reject ... It would be strange if the United States confessed to something. These are professional racketeers and murderers. They still reject the use of chemical weapons in Vietnam. "And the ax was rusty, there was no machine gun at all, and he fired from a machine gun only 180 times, I myself have been a homeless child since childhood ...".
