Question for written answer E-001178-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Artis Pabriks (PPE)

 Subject:  Cooperation with Turkey following the events of July 2016
 Answer in writing 

Due to its geographical location and membership of NATO, Turkey is a strategic partner for Europe and the EU on, among other issues, security-related matters. Furthermore, Turkey is a candidate country for accession to the EU. The Turkish authorities claim that the Gülen Movement was responsible for the failed coup in Turkey on 15 July 2016 and have consequently requested several extraditions.

1. Is this view on the role of the Gülen Movement in the failed Turkish coup also shared by the EU intelligence services?

2. Is the Commission aware of any exchange of information or cooperation on the matter between the EU intelligence services, the EU Member States and the Turkish authorities?
