On Thursday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned Ankara's reaction as disproportionate, as Turkish authorities shut down numerous institutions and detained over 13,000 people in connection with the coup attempt.
"Though the situation in clear, our allies, the European Union, we have been trying to join for many years are acting not in the way we expected. We would like their position to be more clear. Frankly speaking, attitude of some countries to the recent developments in Turkey leaves much to be desired," Celik said.
The coup attempt, which occurred in Turkey on July 15, was suppressed the following day. Over 240 people were killed and more than 2,100 injured during the failed coup, excluding the victims among the coup plotters, according to the country's authorities.
