    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that state of emergency declared after failed coup attempt in Turkey is country's 'internal affair'.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A state of emergency declared by the Turkish leader in the wake of last week’s failed attempt to overthrow the government is an internal matter of the country, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    "This is Turkey’s internal affair," Peskov told reporters.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared a three-month state of emergency in the early hours of Thursday following a late Friday, early Saturday military coup attempt. The decision took effect after an accompanying decree was published on the official gazette later in the day.
