ANKARA (Sputnik) – Celik said that the Turkish authorities expected EU's representatives visiting the country in the wake of the failed coup attempt.

"We expected EU officials, representatives of the European parliament and the European Council to visit Turkey in order to express their support for democratic values that we share," Celik said at a press conference.

At the same time he expressed gratitude to all Turkish allies for their words of support.

The coup attempt took place in Turkey on July 15 and was suppressed by the following day. Some 246 people resisting the attempted coup were killed and around 2,000 were injured, according to the country's authorities.
