Turkish dailies covered in their Tuesday editions the CHP's 34th congress in Ankara and the developments over a Turkish military plane's wreckage.
Most of the Turkish dailies covered the main opposition Republican People's Party's (CHP) two-day 34th congress which will begin today in Ankara. Chairman of the CHP, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, is expected to stress leftist moves, democracy and freedom. Congress' catchword was decided as "Democracy and Changes" quoted daily ZAMAN. "CHP seeks switching back to its social-democratic roots" quoted most of the Turkish dailies.
Daily MILLIYET headlined "Phoenix will bring the wreckage" over the remaining parts of the Turkish jet which was shot down 13 miles off the coast of Syria last June. Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc agreed with the U.S. navy's contractor company, Phoenix, in order to bring the rest of the wreckage back to the surface. Daily MILLIYET quoted Arinc as saying, "The works will take start in a couple of days."
