Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım and opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu underscored the need to preserve the unity of Turkey following the failed coup attempt which took place on July 15, Daily Sabah reported.

Speaking after a meeting in Ankara, Prime Minister Yıldırım thanked CHP chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu for his support against the coup.

He said that it is not acceptable to seek revenge in a state governed by the rule of law.

"Everything will be resolved under the framework of law" the PM said and warned people against provocateurs who urge them to seek revenge, saying "a wrong cannot be justified by another wrong."

"The political will has persisted and democracy has won" Yıldırım said.

The prime minister continued by saying that the people who took to the streets were of great assistance to ensure the vicious coup attempt failed.

CHP Chairman Kılıçdaroğlu said that the society has been through a 'serious trauma' and that it is necessary to normalize as soon as possible.

On July 15, a small military junta linked to the Gülenist Terror Organization (FETÖ) attempted to topple the democratically elected government in Turkey and bring martial law. The attempt was prevented by military troops loyal to the government, along with police units and millions of Turkish citizens in favor of democracy. 208 people, consisting of mostly civilians, have been killed by pro-coup soldiers, while over 1,400 people were injured. Turkey's opposition parties have united against the coup attempt, condemning it in the harshest terms and underscoring their determination to preserve democracy and rule of law in Turkey.
