President Gul says opposing views can freely be expressed in Turkey
President Abdullah Gul said Thursday that opposing views could be expressed freely in Turkey as long as they didn't incite violence, Anadolu reported.
In an exclusive interview with French TV Channel LCI, Gul said , "I don't agree with Armenian allegations regarding 1915, however this does not mean others can't voice such opinions."
Gul said there were no laws restricting or penalising expression of such views.
He said Turkey was a member of the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights, arguing that Turkey was already a part of Europe.
