The Weeks Update: A month on from Turkey's coup
More than a month has passed since the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan crushed an attempt by disgruntled army officers to remove him from power. The government has since arrested thousands of military personnel and police officers - accused of treason - whilst cracking down on opponents of Mr Erdogan's rule. Emboldened by a surge in his popularity, the president has also moved in on Syria where Turkish backed rebels have cleared Islamic State fighters from Turkey's Syrian border. Will Turkish troops stay in the area indefinitely, and what about US/Turkish relations given Washington's support of the Syrian/Kurdish militias who Mr Erdogan claims are terrorists? Professor Mehmet Ugur of the University of Greenwich and Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator, joined Juliette Foster for The Weeks Update.
