Turkish parliament speaker meets Ugandan counterpart


Turkey's parliament speaker on Wednesday met with his Ugandan counterpart in the capital Ankara.

The closed-door meeting between Mustafa Sentop and Uganda’s Rebecca Kadaga lasted for nearly an hour at the Turkish parliament speaker’s office.

Following the meeting, Kadaga visited sections of the Turkish parliament which were bombed during the defeated coup of July 15, 2016.

Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup, which martyred 251 people and injured nearly 2,200 others.

Turkey also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
