In the daily press briefing today (November 22), Spokesperson for the United States (US) State Department Heather Nauert has defined the allegations that Washington plotted a coup in Turkey as “ridiculous”.

According to a report by Amerika’nın Sesi, responding to a journalist’s question Nauert said:

“We’ve heard that story, that old same song and dance from Turkey before, and I would have to give you the same answer as last time they accused us of trying to foment some sort of a coup.

“And I would say that is ridiculous. We are not engaged in that. Anything related to that particular case, I’d just have to refer you to the Department of Justice.

“And so somebody may say something that later they regret saying. They are a NATO member. They are a valued ally of the United States. We have had a strong relationship with Turkey.

“But really, just making comments about the United States trying to foment a coup is just – is simply ridiculous. And I think they recognize – I think they recognize that as well”. (EKN/TK)
