The Government of The Gambia has condemned “in the strongest terms “last Friday’s abortive coup attempt in Turkey. This was contained in an official Gambia Government statement read on national tv on the very night that the coup was attempted.
The statement reads:
The Government of the Islamic Republic of The Gambia condemns in the strongest terms the coup attempt in Turkey.
We will not by any means support any attempt to destabilize the democratically elected government of Turkey, as we have strong ties with the peace-loving people of that great nation since 1994.
As we continue to express solidarity with the people of Turkey, we equally hope that the coup plotters will fail and be brought to justice in the shortest possible time.
