Davutoglu "has seen hope in Diyarbakir"
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Friday said that he wished the hope he had seen in Diyarbakir province on Friday would turn into permanent tranquility.
Speaking to reporters after attending a conference at the Dicle University, Davutoglu underlined that they were determined to do whatever was needed to facilitate the success of the process for solution.
"This is no longer just an issue of Turkey. When an atmosphere (of peace) is reached, this will have a domino effect in the region," Davutoglu stressed.
"Such a domino effect would be a source of hope for Syrians, Egyptians, Tunisians, Libyans and Yemeni people who are demanding democracy and look at Turkey as a model under their tough conditions," Davutoglu emphasized.
"I would like to thank all those contributing to the process of solution in Turkey. We need to continue this process with sensitivity," Davutoglu underlined.
Davutoglu speaks at conference at Dicle University
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that they were opening the path for a great regional restoration.
Speaking at a conference titled "Great Restoration: Our New Political Understanding From the Very Old to Globalization" at the Dicle University in south-eastern province of Diyarbakir, Ahmet Davutoglu underlined that certain circles described Turkey's efforts for a great regional restoration as "Neo-Ottomanism".
"They argue so in order to incite certain nations in the Balkans and Middle East against us," Davutoglu noted.
"We will make the borders in the region meaningless with administrations elected by their own peoples," Davutoglu stated.
"How could a border be between Tel Abyad and Akcakale? When Diyarbakir is separated from Mosul and Urfa from Aleppo, would not this hinterland disappear?" Davutoglu asked the audience listening to him.
"We will either walk together as Turks, Kurds, Albanians, Bosnians and Arabs or else they would try to divide us into small pieces," Davutoglu underlined.
"No politics could be permanent unless it protects human dignity," Davutoglu said.
"Wherever there are individuals with historic ties to us, they are our kins and are the main factor involving our foreign policy," Davutoglu also said.
