"It is noteworthy that the report does not mention at all the role of Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) in the July 15 coup attempt and the presence of FETO leaders in the U.S.," a statement read. 

Led by U.S.-based Fetullah Gulen and his terrorist group FETO, last year's failed coup left at least 248 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

The report refers to the terrorist group as "the Gulen movement".

"The [Turkish] government ascribed responsibility for the attempt to the Fethullah Gulen movement, which it defined as a terrorist organization," the report read.

The Foreign Ministry also criticized the report's description of the fight against PKK terrorist organization as "a conflict between the government and PKK members," saying this description was "totally unacceptable".

"At a time when we are facing unprecedented terror threats against the existence of our state and nation, the inaccurate reflection of our reasonable fight against FETO, PKK, [far-left] DHKP-C, and Daesh has left us deeply disappointed," the ministry said, adding the report was not based on objectivity.

It added that Turkey would continue its fight against terrorism, and to work towards further enhancing fundamental rights and freedoms.

Turkey has been fighting terrorist organizations on multiple fronts whether at home (FETO, PKK) or abroad, in Syria and Iraq (Daesh and PKK allies).
