Turkey will fully switch to the presidential form of government in 2019, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said July 12.

Ministers and senior government officials have been tasked with engaging with global media in the framework of a series of events lined up by the Turkish government to mark the first anniversary of the coup attempt.

Stating that each nation has major turning points in their history, Celik said Turkey has gone through several hard phases throughout its almost 100-year history since being founded as a republic in 1923.

She said that as such, it was baffling that Turkey's declaration of a state of emergency in the wake of the coup attempt was being questioned, when other European nations employ the same method when they come under a terror attack. Ankara accused Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, who has been living in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania since 1999, and his followers of playing a key role in the coup. The three-week protest walk from Ankara to Istanbul demanding democratic reforms attracted increasingly large crowds, culminating in a massive street protest last weekend in Istanbul that drew a crowd estimated at over 1 million. "We millions here demand a new social contract".

"Turkey's fight against terrorism is vital to the security of Europe". Turkey also did this in 2004.

"What we need at the anniversary of the coup attempt is not sympathy for coup-plotters and members of terrorist organisations as well as biased and groundless criticism but more cooperation, dialogue and understanding". Gulen himself denies any involvement, while the leaders of the coup attempt made no mention of him.

"The rumors aren't true at all", the 79-year-old cleric said in an interview with Reuters.

After the attempted coup, he hoped for a "better life and democracy".

The troubling transformation of the past year has Turkey at odds with former allies overseas. We will then initiate our plan B, and C. The European Union is not indispensable for us.
