ANKARA (QHA) - Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the situation got softened and common sense was prevailing regarding Taksim Gezi Park protests.
I believe the situation will turn into normal within a few days, said Erdogan during a joint press conference with his Moroccan counterpart in Rabat on Monday, according to Anadolu Ajansi.
Replying questions of reporters about ongoing protests in several cities of Turkey against the demolition of Taksim Gezi Park, Erdogan said that this was not actually about demolition of a park or uprooting the trees, this was about the efforts of those who could not become successful at ballot boxes.
Main opposition party, extremists and marginal groups are involved in these protests, said Erdogan.
I think, within a few days, until I return to Turkey, the situation will get normal, said Erdogan.
Commenting on Syrian crisis, Erdogan said that the process in Syria was continuing in difficulty, adding that over 300,000 Syrians were staying in Turkey currently and nearly 200,000 of them were living in tent sites, 20,000 in container sites and 180,000 in houses in several cities.
I hope, the new process led by the US and Russia, and which we can call as the second Geneva process, will have contributions in developments in Syria, said Erdogan.
