The Kremlin has “no information” that Russia reportedly warned Turkey of an imminent military coup, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
“I don’t have such information and I don’t know the sources, to which the news agency Fars is referring,” Peskov told journalists, commenting on media reports.
Iranian Fars News Agency (FNA) reported on Wednesday that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had received a warning from Russia about an imminent military coup just hours before it was initiated.
The news agency referred to several Arab media outlets quoting diplomats from Ankara who said that Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization “received intel from its Russian counterpart that warned of an impending coup”.
The warning was based on the data that the Russian military in the region had received intercepting “highly sensitive army exchanges and encoded radio messages showing that the Turkish army was readying to stage a coup,” Fars said.
