– “Longstanding debates such as ‘Is Turkey’s axis shifting?’ and ‘Is Turkey shifting away from the West?’ were put on the agenda [after the July 15 failed coup attempt].Any debate on Turkey’s axis – just like yesterday but also today and tomorrow – is wrong and in vain,” state-run Anadolu Agency quoted Kurtulmuş as telling a group of diplomacy journalists in Ankara on Aug. 17.“If an axis absolutely needs to be mentioned, then we can talk about Turkey’s own axis,” he added.“Turkey fortifies itself on its own axis.”Kurtulmuş said the debate on whether or not Turkey’s axis was shifting was brought about by followers of U.S.-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, whom the Turkish government accuses of orchestrating the July 15 failed coup attempt.More than 250 people died on July 15 after a group inside the army, who are alleged to be Gülenists, attempted to stage a coup to topple the government and take Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan hostage.
