Rwanda is ready to provide all types of assistance to Turkey in its fight against the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ), Rwandan ministers said Saturday.

"We will not allow any activities to be carried out against the Turkish state in this country" Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo told the Anadolu Agency, adding that Rwanda has a clear stance regarding FETÖ, and will not allow the group to do business.

The foreign minister also noted that Rwanda will not let FETÖ supporters, who disregard laws in Turkey to take shelter in the country.

"Rwanda is not a safe haven for people who inflict damage on Turkey, a country we consider as a friend" Mushikiwabo said.

Rwandan Minister of Commerce and Industry François Kanimba highlighted that the country is ready to "fully cooperate" with Turkey on business activities of FETÖ supporters.

"We want to continue to cooperate with Turkey because our relations with Turkey are strategic and significant" the minister said.

FETÖ faces heightened scrutiny after being accused of attempting to topple the democratically elected Turkish government in the July 15 coup attempt, in which 246 people were killed and 2,200 were injured.

Rwanda is one of the several countries, which took action following the July 15 coup attempt regarding FETÖ schools to be transferred to the Turkish Maarif Foundation.
