US President Barack Obama strongly has condemned "last week's attempt to violently remove the democratically-elected civilian government" in Turkey during a call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the White House says.
Obama lauded the Turkish people's "resolve against this violent intervention" during the call and urged that the "investigations and prosecution of the coup's perpetrators be conducted in ways that reinforce public confidence in democratic institutions and the rule of law."
Obama "made clear" the US would provide "appropriate assistance" to Turkish authorities investigating the coup attempt.
