Aycı said the main purpose of the meeting was to explain the coup attempt firsthand to the world so that people can understand it objectively.
“The FETÖ terror organisation continues to spread disinformation abroad. It is trying to damage Turkey’s prestige. In response, Turkish Airlines is hosting various tourism companies, journalists and press members to overcome FETÖ’s black propaganda by telling the truth.”
On the night of July 15 Turkey witnessed an attempted military coup aimed at ousting the democratically elected government.
At least 240 people sacrificed their lives and more than 2,000 people were injured while resisting the coup.
