Erdogan: US' 'political coup attempt' against Turkey

Erdogan: US' 'political coup attempt' against Turkey

Erdogan, speaking to members of his ruling AK Party in parliament, said the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the network of the US -based cleric Turkey blames for a 2016 coup were together using the case to undermine Ankara.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday (January 9) the country's military will continue its operations in Afrin and Manbij regions in northern Syria.

By invading Afrin, Ankara hopes to extinguish Kurdish self-rule in that area for good and further choke the de facto autonomy in Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava).

The PKK - listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and the European Union - resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015.

Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of more than 40.000 of lives, including a number of women and children.

"It is time to block the separatist terror group from forming a terror corridor along Syria", said Erdogan.

"In this process, we need stronger support from our brothers in the region".

The military operation was launched in August 2016 to eliminate the presence of Daesh in northern Syria, near the border of Turkey.

Erdogan said that Atilla was being persecuted by the FBI, CIA and Gulen's group.

Ankara accuses Gulen of masterminding the coup attempt that took place in Turkey in 2016.

A USA jury last week convicted the executive of Turkey's majority state-owned Halkbank of evading Iran sanctions, capping a trial that has strained relations between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.
