Turkey admitted Monday there may have been some "unfair" treatment in its post-coup crackdown as it voiced anger at Germany for barring President Recep Tayyip Erdogan from addressing a rally in Cologne.Turkey meanwhile summoned a senior German diplomat, a day after a rally of tens of thousands of Erdogan supporters in Cologne in opposition to the coup.Unexpectedly, Dunford also visited the Turkish parliament which was extensively damaged by rebel air strikes on the night of the coup, seen as a symbolic gesture.After a cabinet meeting in Ankara, Kurtulmus said Washington would have to choose between support for a "terrorist chief" and the citizens of Turkey.Last week, Erdogan lashed out at the top US general in the Middle East, General Joseph Votel, after he expressed concerns about the future of military relations between the two allies in the wake of the putsch. Meanwhile Turkey on Monday said it had arrested 11 fugitive soldiers suspected of involvement in an attack on Erdogan's hotel during the night of the coup.
