Turkish President Abdullah Gul was discharged from Hacettepe University Hospital after being treated for an ear problem.
Gul has been under treatment since August 23.
Hacettepe University Rector Prof. Murat Tuncer said that President Gul's treatment for an internal ear problem had been successfully completed, and he was discharged from the hospital in a healthy condition.
Gul, who went to Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek on August 22 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 recurrence of an ear problem. He had been under the control of otorhinolaryngology doctors at Hacettepe University Medical Faculty since then.
After doctors recommended Gul not to make air travels, the president cancelled his scheduled trips to foreign countries in September and October.
