(Cihan) - Turkish Grand National Assembly (TBMM) convenes on Thursday to discuss the Justice and Development Party's (AKP) proposal to debate the issues in Iraq.
AKP and Republican People's Party (CHP) had previously agreed to discuss the matter in a closed session on Jan. 23.
Another issue on the agenda of the Parliament will be the opposition Motherland Party (ANAVATAN), or former ANAP's censure motion against Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul, reports Trend.
Submitted by the members of center-right ANAVATAN on Jan.16 to the parliament presidency, the enquiry motion accuses Gul of "breach of duty" due to his failure in the administration of Turkey's foreign policy, especially on northern Iraq.
The motion was to be discussed ten days after being filed but had to be discussed today due to Gul's meetings abroad. The AKP members are expected to vote 'no' and refuse opposition's censure motion and accept the preliminary talks and thus approve the general debate on situation in Iraq. .
FM Gul faces a censure motion for the first time in his political career, unlike some of his colleagues, including Finance Minister Kemal Unakitan and Education Minister Huseyin Celik.
