Turkish Ambassador to Bangladesh Devrim Ozturk on Saturday alleged that some individuals in the International Turkish Hope School, Dhaka administration are 'linked' with FETO, a terrorist group and sought government intervention in this regard.
He said FETO is a terrorist organisation. It is recognized as a terrorist organisation by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Asian Parliamentary Assembly (APA).
"We shared all information in this regard with the government of Bangladesh, however, we are eager to work jointly in this regard," Ozturk said at a press conference yesterday at his residence.   
"This terrorist organisation continues to work for its clandestine agenda in many countries including Bangladesh," he added.
"We expect the Bangladeshi government to eliminate all the activities of FETO and its affiliates in the country," he said adding that this terrorist organisation continues to work for its clandestine agenda in many countries, including Bangladesh.
He urged Bangladesh government to eliminate all the activities of terrorist outfit FETO and its affiliates in the country.
Ambassador Devrim Ozturk also highlighted the Turkish government's initiatives in managing to thwart the coup attempt in July 2015.
He made all these remarks while talking to journalists commemorating the first anniversary of the thwarted coup attempt in Turkey on July 15, 2016.
The Turkih Ambassador said on the evening of July 15, a faction of the Turkish Armed Forces attempted to stage a coup in various cities of Turkey, particularly in Ankara and Istanbul.
On that bloody night the coup plotters took the lives of 250 Turkish citizens and wounded more than 2,000 people, he said.
Honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina sent a solidarity message to our Honourable President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an after the heinous coup attempt. Once again, I would like to thank Her Excellency for her message.
This act of solidarity was not only the symbol of the eternal fraternity and friendship between Turkey and Bangladesh but also the ultimate testimony of the commitment of Bangladesh to democracy and rule of law.
The Ambassador said they rigorously work with their Bangladeshi counterparts in their common fight against terrorism.
