Turkish Defense Minister Criticizes 'Pro-Coup' BBC Coverage

DEFENSE AND TECHNOLOGY -- Turkey's defense minister criticized BBC's "pro-coup" coverage of the July 15 attempted coup in a telephone conversation with his British counterpart, according to a Turkish Defense Ministry source.

National Defense Minister Fikri Isik spoke with Michael Fallon Tuesday and thanked him for the British government’s support for Turkey, but also said he expected the BBC to cover the story accurately, said the source, speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking with the media.

Fallon, for his part, said his country welcomed the coup’s defeat. He said they appreciated the support of Turkey’s people as well as its political parties for democratic values and the rule of law.
