Turkey says no place for authoritarian regimes in Islamic world

04 June 2011, Saturday / TODAYSZAMAN.COM

             Turkish President Abdullah Gül met with Egyptian youth on Saturday

Turkish President Abdullah Gül has told Egypt’s revolutionary youth that there is no place of authoritarianism in the Islamic world, urging rulers of Arab countries to make reforms for more freedom.

“Sadly, struggle [for democracy] continues in some countries today. I would like to remind to rulers in Muslim Arab countries the necessity to be realistic, to perceive the world better and see that there is already no place for authoritarian regimes in the Islamic world,” Gül told “January 25 Tahrir Youth” members on Saturday, who are visiting Turkey.

But Gül also suggested that the governments that have not completed freedom in their countries must lead these kinds of revolution and reforms, adding that as long as the governments don’t make reforms, these rulers would resist but it will have no benefit at the end. He recalled bloodshed and causalities in these countries and said these incidents “indeed made us deeply sad.”

The Turkish president said to end this violence as soon as possible, rulers must first respect their own people before all and take steps in line with demands of their own people so that their countries come out of this process stronger.

“Everyone obviously is aware that I am speaking about countries such as Syria, Libya and other similar countries,” Gül stressed.

President Gül said Turkey is closely monitoring developments in Egypt, and Turkish-Egyptian relations will continue to be strong and the two countries will always benefit from each other´s experiences.

"There will be a multi-party system in Egypt from now on, and whoever the nation wants, will rule the country," Gül said.

Gül said all nations had overcome their fears, and had been struggling in order to be ruled by robust and respected administrations.

Moreover, Ibrahim Al Drawi, a representative of Egypt´s Freedom and Justice Party, said his party wanted Turkey and Egypt to cooperate regarding Palestinian dispute and requested that Turkey supported peace efforts among the Palestinians.
