British Minister criticized the case to ban the AK Party
British minister of foreign affairs criticized the action to ban AK Party: "the governments elected by the public should be supported," Sabah reported.
British minister accompanied the queen Elizabeth in her trip to Turkey; he had a meeting with the foreign affairs minister Ali Babacan and held a joint press conference after the meeting.
Miliband was asked a question about the action to ban AK Party. The minister said: "the governments should be elected by the citizens not by judges."
The messages which the queen Elizabeth could not give on her visit to Turkey were given by the British foreign affairs minister David Miliband.
Miliband accompanied the queen and had contacts in the capital city, Ankara. Miliband had a meeting with the foreign affairs minister Ali Babacan and held a press conference afterwards.
Referring to the action to ban AK Party, Miliband said: "the basic principle of EU is that the citizens elect the governments themselves. Of course, Turkey has its own constitutional law but the governments elected by the citizens should also be supported. This government has made significant changes since the year 2002; moreover, it was elected once again just a short while ago. The citizens should elect the governments not the judges."
