Azerbaijan, Baku, 12 June / Trend, R. Hafizoglu /
The Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) will not participate in the meeting with the Turkish president, Turkish newspaper Milliyet wrote on Wednesday, referencing the party's press-secretary.
According to the newspaper, the party's statement says that the protests taking place in the country are not of a large enough scale to require discussion with the head of the country.
Earlier, the leader of the opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) Kemal Kilichdaroglu called upon the President of Turkey Abdullah Gul to convene a meeting of the leaders of all parties of the country.
For more than two weeks, protests have been continuing in various Turkish cities. According to representatives of Turkish authorities, the protests already have an anti-government character.
It is expected that Prime Minister Rajap Tayyip Erdogan will meet with a delegation of Taksim Square protesters on Wednesday.
