Turkey's president said on Saturday that executives of Muslim Arab countries should see that there was no place for authoritarian regimes in the Islam world.
President Abdullah Gul said protests continued in some Muslim and Arab countries, and the executives of those countries should be realistic.
"Executives of Muslim Arab countries should perceive the world well, and see that there is no place for authoritarian regimes in the Islam world," Gul said during his meeting in Istanbul with young leaders of protests at Egypt's Tahrir Square who caused resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.
Egypt, the most populous country in the Arab world, erupted in mass protests in January 2011, as the revolution in Tunisia seemed to inflame decades of smoldering grievances against the rule of President Hosni Mubarak. After 18 days of angry protests, Mubarak resigned and turned over all power to the military on February 11, ending his 30 years of rule.
President Gul said Turkey was closely monitoring developments in Egypt, and Turkish-Syrian relations would continue to be strong and the two countries would always benefit from each other's experiences.
"There will be a multi-party system in Egypt from now on, and whoever the nation wants, will rule the country," Gul said.
Gul said all nations had overcome their fears, and had been struggling in order to be ruled by robust and respected administrations.
President Gul also said administrators in Muslim Arab countries should perceive demands of their people and pioneer such revolutions and reforms.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Abdulah Helmy requested that President Gul launched initiatives to open a Turkish university in Egypt.
Helmy also requested that Al Azhar University open a branch or faculty in Turkey, and said it was the right time for the two countries to establish strategic partnership and two countries should take steps for the future of their people.
Moreover, Ibrahim Al Drawi, a representative of Egypt's Freedom & Justice Party, said the party wanted Turkey and Egypt to cooperate regarding Palestinian dispute and requested that Turkey supported peace efforts among the Palestinians.
The group will also visit Ankara.
