The role of other countries, he noted with skepticism in following phrase: "Message of support for democracy in Turkey was sent from many countries."

The Minister also noted that there were gaps in the national security system of Turkey. According to him, nothing but speculation about a coup attempt had to be known to the president from the outset.
