ANKARA (Reuters) - It is not deliberate if Turkey makes some mistakes when going after the hundreds of thousands of people suspected of links to the U.S.-based cleric it charges with orchestrating a failed coup, the Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Thursday.

In a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Ankara, Yildirim also said that a united Cyprus was Turkey's greatest desire.
