Fethullah Gulen’s Interview with Voice of America

View original interview here.

Speaking at an impromptu news conference from his home in the remote village of Saylorsburg, in eastern Pennsylvania, Fethullah Gulen stressed that he left Turkey 15 years ago and no longer knew who his supporters were in the country, but that he was unaware of any role in the coup attempt Friday by his followers.

Gulen told VOA’s Turkish Service Erdogan had falsely accused him, and that he wouldn’t have returned to Turkey even if the coup had succeeded.
