MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The FETO was recognized as a terrorist organization during the APA session last week.
"All the participating states expressed support to Turkey in the fight against [FETO]. This decision was reflected in the final declaration. We consider this a very important step," Aydin said on Wednesday.
On July 15, a military coup attempt took place in Turkey. Ankara accused Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, who has been living in the US state of Pennsylvania since 1999, and his followers of playing a key role in the coup. Since July, Turkey has arrested hundreds of military personnel, activists and journalists on suspicion of links to Gulen.
