Last year’s July 15 coup attempt in Turkey was backed by foreign forces, Mahir Unal, deputy chairman and spokesman of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), said at a meeting with Azerbaijani and foreign journalists on Friday.

The AKP deputy chairman met with a group of Azerbaijani and foreign journalists in connection with the first anniversary of the July 15 coup attempt in Turkey, an APA correspondent reported from Turkey.

Unal said it was surprising the coup attempt took place in a country that is an ally of the US in NATO and a candidate for EU membership.

“However, we have no evidence of what particular country had supported the coup,” he said.

The AKP official thanked the Azerbaijani side for its support to Turkey during the coup attempt.
