ISTANBUL: (APP) The United States' ambassador to Turkey has again denied allegations his country was involved in last month's failed coup attempt, Turkish media reported Saturday.

"I just want to say again, as I've said before and as we've said from Washington, the United States government did not plan, direct, support or have any advance knowledge of any of the illegal activities that occurred the night of July 15 and into July 16.

Full stop," US ambassador John Bass said in remarks published in English daily Hurriyet Daily News.

He added that he was "deeply disturbed and offended by the accusations" targeting his country.
