Erdogan: We declare three month state of emergency

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has declared a three month state of emergency after the July 15 failed coup attempt.

“I went to Marmaris for a vacation. The news came to me about this coup attempt. My brother-in-law informed me first,” Erdoğan told Al Jazeera on July 20.

“I didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t want to believe it first. But then we took the necessary steps after confirming this from intelligence and several other channels. I was with the Energy Minister at the time. We took the necessary steps to leave the hotel. Then we went to Istanbul from Dalaman,” he also said.

Saying that he believed foreign countries might have been involved in the failed coup attempt, Erdoğan declined to name any.
