Turkish Delegation in Morocco Warns Against Gulen's Movement 'Danger'

(MENAFN- Morocco World News) A Turkish delegation was reportedly in Morocco last week to warn Moroccan authorities about the 'danger' of the movement of Fethullah Gülen, the alleged mastermind of the July 15th coup d'état, that aimed to overthrow Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The delegation consisted of three deputies of the Turkish ruling party, the Justice and Development Party (AKP), who stayed in Morocco for three days as part of their tour in the region to expound on the risks that Gulen's movement may pose to the interests of the countries where it is present.

The deputies met with several Moroccan officials, including members of the Justice and Development Party (PJD), the leader of the coalition government in Morocco.

During a press conference at the Turkish Embassy in Rabat, the deputies said that Gulen's movement 'is not only a threat to Turkey, but also to all countries where the movement organizes its activities.'

Ethem Barkan Öz, Turkey's Ambassador to Morocco, said that Moroccan authorities 'are aware of the activities of Gulen's movement in the kingdom.'

Earlier this month, the ambassador said that Turkey is ready to cooperate with Morocco to shut down the institutions of Gülen, noting that Gülen's organization, known in Turkey as FETO, emerged as a religious movement in 1970 when it began working on education and inter-religious dialogue by establishing private schools and accommodating students who are members of the organization.
