Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan marks sixth anniversary of defeated 2016 coup attempt by hailing nation for resilience in the face of terrorists.
Tribute is offered in memory of those who paid the ultimate price for their nation's freedom, while honouring the bravery and courage that foiled a terrorist coup plot.
