A terrorist group from Turkey is operating schools in the Philippines, according to Turkish Ambassador Esra Cankorur.
Cankorur said the Fetullah Gulen Movement runs a school in Zamboanga City and two others in Manila.
Malacañang on Thursday said the government is verifying the claims made by the Turkish ambassador over the presence of the Turkish terror group in the Philippines, according to state-owned Philippine News Agency (PNA)’.
The Gulen movement was classified as a terrorist organization by the Turkish government in 2015.
The Turkish government blames the movement for the 2016 failed coup attempt against President Recept Tayyip Erdogan.
