Turkish General Staff excludes possibility of coup
The Turkish General Staff pledged its commitment to the Constitution and ruled out the possibility of any illegal actions in relation to the government.
"The army is fighting against terrorism inside the country and abroad in line with its tasks laid out in the Constitution and laws," the document says.
"The baseless reports and comments in some media organs annoyed and impacted the morale and motivation of the soldiers," the General Staff noted. "It is out of the question to make concessions to any illegal formation or movement outside of the command hierarchy," TASS cited the statement as saying.
