Davutoglu sees 'Turkish era' in PACE's new term

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met Thursday Mevlut Cavusoglu, newly-elected Turkish president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

Davutoglu said during the meeting that the next period in the Council of Europe would be a "Turkish era."

In November 2010, Cavusoglu will also assume the chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, the Council of Europe's decision-making body, Davutoglu recalled.

"We attach special importance to this period in which Turkey's effect could be seen once again," Davutoglu said.

On his part, Cavusoglu said that Turkey has become a notable and an effective country in international organizations thanks to its strong, dynamic and proactive foreign policy.

He also said that there were several challenging reforms to be made in the Council of Europe and asked for support from Turkish Foreign Minister and the ministry staff.
