"The revolution done by Turkey in its geography has disturbed some," according to Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, whose Dec. 25 statement comes reinforcing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's reaction to the graft probe, claiming Turkey is the target of a foreign plot Hurriyet Daily News reported.
"If today there are some making some calculations about us, if we have disturbed some, be sure that this is due to the revolution we have started in this land" said Davutoglu addressing a meeting of Turkish Exporters' Assembly.
"Turkey's rising trend will continue no matter who says what. The Turkey we have in our mind is a Turkey that is in peace, based on the people's sovereignty, accountable only to its own nation, integrated with its neighbors and makes itself to be talked about all over the world with its policies, culture and economy. Businessmen will be our biggest strength in that endeavor," Davutoglu said.
"The same minor developments could take place in all democratic countries," Davutoglu said commenting on the recent developments in the country that led to the resignation of three ministers, earlier Dec. 25.
"What is important is to have a strong societal cement, to maintain our unity and togetherness, whatever disagreements we have among us, that we have the maturity to solve them with wisdom, conscience and dialogue, and then consolidate our democratic system and have a political governance system that trusts its people to prevail and get our vision to open up to the world moving," Davutoglu said.
