Kerry makes U-turn over coup attempt
Earlier, when the coup was underway, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he hoped for stability and continuity in Turkey. Speaking at a news conference in Moscow after a day of talks on Syria with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Kerry said he could not comment further on Turkey because he did not have the latest details of what was happening there.
However, after the coup was quelled, Kerry asserted the United States' "absolute support" for Turkey's democratically elected, civilian government and democratic institutions in a telephone call to Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu. Kerry said he urged all parties to ensure the safety and well-being of diplomatic missions, personnel and civilians across Turkey. The U.S. State Department told U.S. citizens in Turkey to "shelter in place and stay indoors."
