Wisma Putra also said 31 Malaysians who were stranded at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul had secured flight tickets to their next destination.

Meanwhile, the first batch of 32 Malaysians leaving Turkey arrived safely at the KL International Airport yesterday morning.

Wisma Putra said through a concerted effort, a special task force comprising officials from the Malaysian Embassy in Ankara, Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) and Tourism Malaysia, assisted by the Honorary Consul of Malaysia in Istanbul, were able to render assistance to Malaysians stranded at the Turkish airports.

It said since the attempted coup, the situation in Turkey “though still fluid, was now almost normalised”.

The Malaysian Student Association in Turkey (Masat) confirmed that no Malaysians were affected in the coup attempt.

In a statement yesterday, Masat said it was awaiting further investigations by the authorities.

“We condemn the attempt by a segment of the military to overthrow the legitimate Turkish government that was democratically elected by the citizens of Turkey,” said the statement.

Masat said it had advised all Malaysian citizens in Turkey, be they students or visitors, to be careful and keep in contact with the Malaysian embassy.
