Turkey is standing strong economically and politically, despite attempts by agents of the Gülenist Terror Organization (FETÖ) to bring down the democratically elected government, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said on Thursday.

Speaking to heads of Turkish commerce in Ankara, Yıldırım said that Turkey will ensure that its economic development continues, assuring investors and citizens that the government will continue to preserve political and economic stability in the country.

"Government will introduce a new package to encourage investment and remove taxes on investments" Yıldırım said and added that Turkey will remove bureaucratic obstacles on the way of investment.

On July 15, 2016, Gülenist agents in the military launched an unsuccessful bid to topple the government. The coup attempt failed due to a huge public uprising in condemnation of the move, and cooperation with police forces, as well as the determination of Turkey's political parties which opposed the military takeover.
