Condemnation of attempted military coup in Turkey

We are shocked at the news of the attempted military coup against the Recep Tayyip Erdoğan government in Turkey. This military attempt to force regime change in Turkey is a blatant disregard for the democratic process and totally undermines the will of the Turkish people.

Pakatan Harapan stands in solidarity with President Erdoğan and the Turkish people. We pray for the safety of the Turkish people who are now amassing on the streets as a show of support for democracy. We also call for a swift end to this attempted military coup, and a calm and restrained response by all sides.

Attempts to change the Turkish government must take place through peaceful, constitutional and democratic means, and any attempts to affect change through military intervention must be rejected.
