Senegal: Visiting Turkish President promises continued cooperation

  • 01 March 2018


    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country will continue its cooperation with Senegal in the fight against Fetullah Gulen.
    Mr Gulen who is based in the US is accused by the government of President Erdogan of orchestrating the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 250 people dead and nearly 2,200 others injured.
    President Erdogan made the remarks while addressing a joint news conference in Dakar with his Senegalese counterpart Macky Sall.
