Turkey condemns ‘coup attempt’ in Armenia

Turkey views the events in Armenia as ‘a coup attempt’ and strongly condemns them, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said this on Thursday, RIA Novosti reported.

“Wherever there is a coup in the world, we [Turkey] condemn it. We also strongly condemn this [coup] attempt [in Armenia]. One can criticize, demand the resignation of the government; that’s normal. [But] not only to overthrow the government with the help of the army, but even its call, is unacceptable,” said Cavusoglu, who is on a working visit to Budapest.
