Press Secretary of the President of Turkey Ibrahim Kalin accused Germany to support living in the United States disgraced theologian Fethullah Gulen. Turkish authorities claim that gülen was organizing the coup attempt in July 2016.
The basis for the prosecution was the publication of the Der Spiegel interview with the head of the Federal intelligence service Bruno KAHL. He said that was not considered conclusive given Turkey the «testimonies» of Gulen communion to the coup.
«This is an attempt to discredit all of the submitted materials. This direct support of a terrorist organization Gulen. Germany uses it in the fight against Turkey,» — said the press Secretary of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
A day earlier, Erdogan threatened to break the agreement, according to which Turkey places on its territory of refugees from Syria in exchange for European funding. «We’ll have in Europe the Muslim flood», — he promised.
The indignation of the Turkish leader called the calls of EU leaders, addressed to living in Europe for Turkish citizens. The European Union convinces them to vote against the introduction of presidential rule. The constitutional reforms will give Erdogan almost unlimited powers.
