Turkey Marks Coup Anniversary With Changed Face

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan might receive an arrest warrant from the Swedish government Erdoğan: EU 'not indispensable for us'

Turkey is marking the first anniversary of the failed July 15 coup attempt by the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) through various activities across the country, APA reports. "We are relaxed", added the Turkish President, noting that Turkey "is able to stand on two feet".

"Turkey will completely get rid of external dependence in the military and defense industries", Erdogan said.

"We are loyal to our word", he told the BBC.

"The European Union is not indispensable for us", Erdoğan said in the interview, which will be fully broadcast on Friday. "We will continue to remember July 15 with more comprehensive programs in the future", he said.

To the question of why more than a hundred journalists are imprisoned, he said: "Please let's not fool the world with these lies".

Turkey also extended the detention of Amnesty International's local Director Idil Eser and nine others.

Erdogan said the watch will start on July 15. "No-one is jailed because of journalism here", Erdoğan claimed. They say the government used its control of the media to suppress opposition arguments while clamping down harshly on dissent.

The minister said the attempted coup showed how civilians in Turkey were ready to defend democracy and that it had opened a new chapter in the country's political arena.

The emergency measure had been brought in after the coup attempt and was about to expire on Wednesday.

Over the previous year, more than 50,000 people have been arrested for alleged involvement in the insurgency and more than 100,000 others have been fired from civil service jobs.

More than 50,000 people have been jailed pending trial and 150,000 state workers including teachers, judges and soldiers have been suspended or dismissed under emergency rule imposed in late July after the coup.
