Health condition of Turkish President Abdullah Gul, who is under treatment for a problem in his ear, is good.
Gul spent the night at hospital on Thursday and began his ear treatment early on Friday.
Gul, who went to Kyrgyzstan on Wednesday to attend a meeting of Cooperation Council of Turkic States, cut short his visit and returned 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, and recommended Gul to stay hospital last night.
Doctors started to treat the president's ear at 7:00 a.m. today.
