Erdogan supporters march in Pristina on anniversary of failed coup in Turkey

Marš u Prištini na godišnjicu neuspelog puča

Supporters of Turkish President Recep Tayyp Erdogan marched on Sunday in Pristina to commemorate the anniversary of 2016’s failed coup in Turkey.

The supporters of Turkish President Erdogan from all over the country gathered in Kosovo’s capital commemorating the failed coup in Turkey in 2016. The event was attended by the Turkish Ambassador to Pristina, Kivilim Kilic, Kosovo MP Duda Balje and some other personalities. The march was organised by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) which operates in Kosovo.

On Saturday the Turkish Embassy in Kosovo organised, in the southern city of Prizren, a reception commemorating the failed coup which was attended by senior state officials and leaders of opposition parties.

Turkey is commemorating the second anniversary of thwarting a coup attempt against the Turkish president and the government, during which 250 people were killed. Turkey has blamed the U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen for the coup attempt. Gulen has denied any involvement in the plot. In the past months, Turkish authorities have detained tens of thousands of people, including civil servants, journalists, and teachers in a crackdown on alleged Gulen supporters. Also, Kosovo authorities have arrested and deported six Turkish men for their alleged links with Gulen’s movement
