Turkish dailies mostly covered in their Tuesday issues the remarks made by Turkish President Abdullah Gul while receiving the Constitutional Compromise Committee and the latest dialogue between Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and joint UN and Arab League special envoy on Syria Kofi Annan.
Commenting on President Gul's remarks while receiving the Constitutional Compromise Committee, almost all dailies quoted Gul as saying "the new constitution should not have excessive details". Milliyet daily quoted Gul as saying "the new constitution should be based on democracy, secularism and rule of law. The whole parliament should take part in writing the new constitution. The new constitution should not be the work of a single political party". Turkiye daily quoted President Gul as saying "the opportunity for a new constitution should not be missed. Otherwise, we may have to wait another 40 years".
Dailies also highlighted the latest dialogue between Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Kofi Annan. Yeni Safak daily quoted Annan as saying "I have failed in ending violence in Syria". It was Annan who phoned Davutoglu and he gave information to Davutoglu on the recent situation in Syria. Annan also provided information to Davutoglu on his talks in the United States. Annan reminded Davutoglu about Russia's plans for an international meeting on Syria.
