Valletta: NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg warned Turkey today it must fully respect legal due process as Ankara continues to make mass arrests after last July's failed coup.

"Turkey has the right to protect itself and to prosecute those who were behind the failed coup attempt but that has to take place based on the full respect of the rule of law," Stoltenberg said as he arrived for an EU defence ministers meeting in Valletta.
