BAKU, August 23 /TASS/ Azerbaijan has asked Turkey to help uncover links and sources of funding for the supporters of Fethullah Gulen, the US-based Turkish cleric accused of organizing the aborted coup in Turkey, Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, the General Prosecutor’s Office and the State Security Service announced in a joint statement on Tuesday.
"In compliance with the European Convention, a petition was forwarded to the Turkish General Prosecutor to launch an investigation to identify the connections between Hizmet movement members operating in Azerbaijan and its supporters abroad, particularly in Turkey", the statement read.
