Erdogan Has Praised Parliament's Bravery During The Coup Attempt In July Last Year

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has praised parliament's bravery during the coup attempt in July last year.

Addressing a ceremony at Turkish Parliament in Ankara late last night, he said the coup soldiers disgraced themselves by bombing the parliament as our lawmakers stood higher.

He said we will now make sure that no one attacks the Parliament again.

Earlier, the Turkish President unveiled the Monument of Martyrs near the Martyrs' Bridge in Istanbul to honour those who lost their lives resisting the coup. In his address on the occasion, he said we will not forget, and will not let it be forgotten.

Last year's defeated coup left two hundred fifty people dead and nearly two thousand two hundred injured.
