The celebration ceremony and reception, which were planned to be held at Cankaya Presidential Palace on August 30 Victory Day, was cancelled due to a health problem of President Abdullah Gul.

Presidency press center stated on Tuesday that the ceremony and reception had been cancelled after Gul's doctors at Hacettepe University Hospital in Ankara recommended him to limit his daily activities.

Gul has been undergoing a treatment for a recurring problem in both ears at the Hacettepe University Hospital since last week after cutting short his visit in Kyrgyzstan and returned to Turkey last Thursday.

Meanwhile, Parliament Speaker Cemil Cicek will attend the ceremonies at Anitkabir (Ataturk's Mausoleum), Ataturk Culture Center, Gulhane Military Hospital, and military academies by proxy on August 30.

Hacettepe University's Rector Murat Tuncer said that Gul's condition was clinically improving, adding that his medical treatment would continue for five days.

On Monday, Gul cancelled all his trips to foreign countries in September and October as his doctors recommended him to avoid air travel for two months.
