ANKARA, July 25. /TASS/. Turkish opposition forces may stage in coup in Kyrgyzstan as they have penetrated the government, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told the HaberTurk radio station on Monday.
Cavusoglu dubbed Kyrgyzstan as "a base for Gulen followers in Central Asia," referring to Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is believed to be the main opponent of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and is accused of a failed coup attempted in Turkey on July 15. Ankara seeks Gulen’s extradition from the United States where he has been living in recent years.
"They (Gulen’s supporters) have infiltrated Kyrgyzstan’s government," Cavusoglu said. "They could state a coup there."
The Turkish foreign minister is certain that Kyrgyzstan is under a serious threat. He had notified his Kyrgyz counterpart about the fact and handed a list of names of Gulen’s followers to him, Cavusoglu added.
