Turkish foreign minister expressed hope on Saturday to grant citizenship to a Yemeni Nobel peace prize laureate soon.
Ahmet Davutoglu met Tawakel Karman in the central province of Konya, and said he met Karman in Germany last month.
"I offered her to grant Turkish citizenship, and we hope we can grant citizenship to Karman as soon as possible," Davutoglu said.
Karman, in her part, expressed gratitude to Turkey for its support to rightful freedom struggle of nations, and said particularly, Turkey's support to Arab Spring could never be forgotten.
"I declare that I accept this citizenship," Karman also said.
Karman won the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts regarding women's security and women's rights in her country.
