Speakers who took the floor at the meetings stated that the July 15 coup attempt caused great indignation among Muslims in their own countries and that they fully supported Turkey in the fight against this treacherous organization.

During the visit, which started with a seminar where our guests were informed about the latest developments in Turkey, the July 15 coup attempt and the treacherous structure behind it were introduced in detail. Representatives from each region were given the right to speak and mutual consultations and evaluations were made.
At the meeting, UNIW Secretary General Ali Kurt started his speech by thanking the guests and said, “As always, the international public did not want to understand this coup attempt, in which we inflicted more than two hundred martyrs and thousands of wounded, with double standards and insensitivity that never surprises us, as in Egypt, Syria and Yemen. In return for this insensitivity of the Western world, you shared our troubles in your hearts. We thank you for being with us with your sincere prayers with the consciousness of an ummah and for accepting our invitation.”
KDK Coordinator Ali Osman Öztürk greeted the participants from all corners of the Islamic world and said, “We had a very painful experience, but after every darkness there is a light. Our Lord showed us this in this event and blessed us with victory. The Western world has approached this coup attempt from an Islamophobic point of view and has turned into 'Turkeyphobia' and 'Erdoganphobia'.
Emphasizing the importance of the struggle on 15 July in his speech, Deputy Director General of Press and Information İ. Mansur Özdemir said, “The İzzet dress is the most beautiful of all dresses. May Allah accept our dignified stance in his office. The martyrs of Jerusalem, Rabia and July 15 are brothers.” used the phrases.
Later, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State Mr. Numan Kurtulmuş was visited in Çankaya Mansion. After the speech of thanks by our Secretary General, Mr. Ali Kurt, Mr. Kurtulmus gave information about the Turkish State's struggle against this uprising, emphasizing that the issue also has an international dimension and that it should be fought on an international scale. “Those who could not stop Turkey will now try to stop Turkey with PKK terrorism and other terrorist organizations. None of them will be able to." said.
Receiving our guests at the Presidential Complex later on, Mr. President, emphasizing the importance of the movement within the consciousness of the Ummah; He said, "I congratulate each and every one of you for this beautiful image, this picture of unity, that our brothers put forward in unity and solidarity in the organization of Non-Governmental Organizations of the Islamic World."
Stating that Turkey is under the common attack of terrorist organizations, which act with the same motives and have close relations with each other, even though they have different names, our President said that one of the issues he emphasized and regretted the most; He said that the Islamic world was unable to resolve the conflicts and problems within itself.
Pointing out that the terrorist attacks experienced accelerated the steps that Turkey will take regarding security, the President said, "Just as the July 15 issue has enabled us to cut out the cancer cells called FETO that have infiltrated our country and our nation, such actions accelerate our process of building a stronger security structure." he said.
