    The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry expects the Turkish authorities' official statement after the situation in the country returns back to normal, the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry's press officer told Sputnik on Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry announced that Turkey had closed crossing points at the border with the country amid the ongoing military coup attempt.

    "We expect the official statement by the Turkish authorities, when the situation in the country is back to normal," he said.

    In the early hours of Saturday morning the Turkish government came under siege by a faction of military forces who sought to end President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's rule, claiming that the leader drifted away from the country's long-held secularist values.
