Turkey will restructure its intelligence apparatus following a failed military coup last month because it was under the control of the US-based cleric blamed for staging the putsch, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.

In a televised speech in his palace in Ankara, Erdogan also said the European Union had failed to live up to its promises under a migration deal with Turkey despite his country’s successes in curbing illegal migration.
