The Turkish embassy in Rabat has provided the Moroccan foreign ministry information about Fethullah Gulen’s institutions in the kingdom in the hope that action will be taken against them, an official said.

The Chargé d’Affaires of the Turkish Embassy in Rabat, Ibrahim Khalil Sakli, made the remarks during a visit by a delegation from the Moroccan Justice and Development Party to the embassy headquarters in Rabat yesterday.

Sakli said: “The Gulen, group which stands behind the failed coup attempt in Turkey, has institutions in Morocco,” adding that the embassy contacted the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs after the coup attempt and provided it with information on these.

“We hope the Moroccan authorities will take the appropriate action on this subject,” he added.
