Turkish President Abdullah Gul will spend the night at hospital to begin an ear treatment early on Friday.
Gul's press consultant Ahmet Sever told AA on Thursday that doctors decided to begin a medical treatment for Gul at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, so they recommended the president to stay at hospital tonight.
Gul, who went to Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek on Wednesday to attend the 2nd Summit meeting of Cooperation Council of Turkic States, cut short his visit and came back to Turkey earlier than scheduled due to a recurrence of an ear problem.
Following their examinations, otorhinolaryngology doctors at Hacettepe University Medical Faculty decided there was no need for a surgery.
His spouse Hayrunnisa Gul is accompanying the president.
