Turkey state of emergency may only last up to 45 days: deputy PM

ANKARA, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21th july, 2016) : Turkey's deputy premier said Thursday the state of emergency declared to fight plotters of last week's failed coup may only last up to 45 days, despite being declared for a three-month span.

"We want to end the state of emergency as soon as possible," Numan Kurtulmus said in quotes carried by private NTV television. "If conditions return to normal, we think it will take a one or one-and-a-half month period at the maximum.

I hope there will be no need for a further extension."
