The PABSEC International Secretariat strongly condemns the coup attempt in the Republic of Turkey on 15 July 2016.
We are perplexed by the coup attempt directed against democracy in Turkey. Unfortunately, many innocent people lost their lives and many were injured.
We express our deep condolences to the families of the victim Turkish citizens and wish a speedy recovery to the injured.
We admire the millions of supporters of democracy that formed a human wall to protect the democratic regime in Turkey from the threat of military coup.
Under the leadership of H.E. Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of the Republic of Turkey, and with the help of millions of democracy defenders the coup attempt was averted. Democracy gained the victory. We hope that such situations will never happen again.
We are convinced that the Turkish nation and the Turkish state will continue to live in peace and democracy.
