“Such a [skeptical] statement by a chief of intelligence of a country, Germany, is raising suspicions about Germany and leading to this question: Was German intelligence behind the coup attempt?” Fikri Isik said on Kanal 7 TV.
In an interview with newsweekly Der Spiegel published Saturday, Federal Intelligence Service (BND) head Bruno Kahl said of Gulen’s role in the coup, "Turkey has tried on different levels to convince us of that, but they have not succeeded."
Led by U.S.-based Fetullah Gulen, FETO is accused of orchestrating the July 15 coup plot as well as being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and the judiciary.
Turkey has submitted evidence of the FETO coup plot to governments worldwide, including Germany and the U.S., and urged them to eliminate FETO institutions in their own countries and extradite FETO suspects.
