Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Sunday said Turkey needed a new constitution which would recognize basic rights and freedoms in the broadest sense.
"The new constitution, though based on state's security, should fortify the sovereignty of the people, and expand basic rights and freedoms to their most contemporary levels," Davutoglu told a panel discussion in the central Anatolian province of Eskisehir.
Davutoglu said Turkey's top priority was to strengthen its democracy as well as secure that every state body should execute its own function.
"No state organ can see itself as the sole owner of the state. This is what should be in a contemporary democracy. Everyone should act within their well-established boundaries as defined by the constitution. Hopefully, we will see this political restoration and revolution happen all together," Davutoglu said.
