India monitoring Turkey situation closely

 The Ministry of External Affairs on Saturday announced that India was closely monitoring the situation in Turkey following reports of an attempted coup.

 
"We have been closely following the developments in Turkey," the ministry said in a statement.
 
"India calls upon all sides to support democracy and mandate of the ballot, and avoid bloodshed," it added.
 
At least 42 were killed in clashes after tanks opened fire around the Turkish parliament building in Ankara and military jets were seen flying low over the city as the military claimed it had seized control of the country late Friday night.
