World Powers Call For 'Stability' In Turkey
Ankara:  World leaders urged "respect for democratic institutions" Saturday after a failed coup attempt in which over 250 people were killed in Turkey, a key NATO member and European neighbour.
  • We should all urge calm and respect for laws, institutions, and basic human rights and freedoms, and support for the democratically elected civilian government.

    Hillary Clinton

     
  • All parties in Turkey should support the democratically-elected government of Turkey, show restraint, and avoid any violence or bloodshed.

    White House

     
  • I welcome the strong support shown by the people and all political parties to democracy and to the democratically elected government of Turkey.

    NATO Chief Jens Stoltenberg

     
  • Military interference in the affairs of any state is unacceptable.

    United Nations Chief Ban-Ki-Moon

     
  • Just spoken to (Turkey's) foreign minister (Mevlut Cavusoglu). I underlined (Britain's) support for the democratic elected government and institutions.

    British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson

     
  • The tensions in and challenges for Turkey cannot be solved with guns.

    European Council President Donald Tusk

     
  • Turkish people's brave defense of democracy and their elected government proves that coups have no place in our region and are doomed to fail.

    Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif

     
  • The Turkish population showed its maturity and courage by committing to the respect of its institutions... France hopes that Turkish democracy will emerge strengthened from this test and that fundamental freedoms will be fully respected.

    French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault

     
  • The flare-up of the domestic political situation against the backdrop of the existing terrorist threats in this country and the armed conflict in the region brings a heightened risk to international and regional stability.
