US State Department: On Turkish Statements on 2016 Attempted Coup

US State Department: On Turkish Statements on 2016 Attempted Coup

Washington, DC (STL.News) Press Statement by Ned Price, Department Spokesperson:

The United States had no involvement in the 2016 attempted coup in Turkey and promptly condemned it.  Recent assertions to the contrary made by senior Turkish officials are wholly false.

These remarks and other unfounded and irresponsible claims of U.S. responsibility for events in Turkey are inconsistent with Turkey’s status as a NATO Ally and strategic partner of the United States.
