American Turkish Business Development Council Condemns the Coup Attempt

American Turkish Business Development Council condemns the coup attempt against democracy in Turkey in the most severe manner. Republic of Turkey is a democratic country, thus the legitimacy of any group or institution other than a government that comes to the power with a democratic election cannot be accepted at all.
Those treacherous names who bombed the Turkish Parliament as well as some of the official institutions and opened fire on civilians must be brought before justice as soon as possible and should be punished in the framework of the rule of law.
  Our nation, more than ever, should stay in unity and must show solidarity and its attitude defending democracy without resorting to any kind of violence. We have full confidence that Turkish Republic will come to light out of this dark period with increased power. American Turkish Business Development Council extends its most sincere condolences to the families of those lost their lives and wishes a speed recovery to the all injured.
