Turkish dailies mostly covered in their Thursday issues the blast in the Syrian capital of Damascus, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and development of main opposition Republican People's (CHP) Party's members list of candidates to its party assembly.

The daily quoted Erdogan as saying "Russia is not taking a dim view of this transition without Assad".
The dailies also covered their Thursday edition with the main opposition party CHP's member list of candidates for the party assembly.
