Celik held talks with representatives of Republican People's Party (CHP), Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) and Democratic Society Party (DTP) at the parliament on Tuesday, regarding the new draft law envisaging amendments to social security and general health insurance law.

Celik said he briefed the party representatives on the results of his recent talks with social parties and NGOs.

"With the documents we provided them, the parties will now have the opportunity to make a new assessment on the issue. We will continue to ask for their contribution," Celik said.

He said contributions could be made during the debates at the parliament as well.

"However, the important thing is not to have any diversion from the basic parameters and the goals Turkey desires to achieve on social security issue," Celik said.

"We are always open to demands concerning the content. We will assess them as well," he added.
