Slovenia condemns in the strongest terms the failed military coup in Turkey, which was attempted Friday night, claiming numerous victims, with many more injured.

The use of force as a method of assuming power is unacceptable. Slovenia firmly supports the Turkish government, its institutions and democratic processes of social change. At the same time it expects the Turkish government to fully respect, and ensure, the rule of law and human rights in exercising its legitimate power, and law and order in the country.
