Turkish prime minister on Friday accused the chairman of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) of "starring in" anti-Turkey attacks masterminded by the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind last year's defeated coup attempt.
Speaking at an event in Istanbul, Binali Yildirim said "those who cannot digest Turkey's progress in the last 15 years continue their ugly attacks" against Turkey.
"The leader of the main opposition party [Kemal Kilicdaroglu] is starring in the attacks, while the screenwriter is FETO, and the producer is the global political engineers. The plot is bringing Turkey to its knees," Yildirim said.
On Tuesday, Kilicdaroglu, in a speech to party lawmakers, presented documents he alleged were evidence of his claims that relatives of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had money abroad.
Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party accused the main opposition leader of telling "lies", calling on him to present the documents in court to prove the claims.
Erdogan rejected the allegations and vowed to resign if they were proved.
FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the July 15, 2016 defeated coup in Turkey, which martyred 250 and left nearly 2,200 injured. World Bulletin / News Desk
