"We do not have such an initiative or a thought," Bozdag told reporters after Turkish Day Parade and Festival in New York.       Bozdag also referred to developments in Syria, and said that Turkey would not remain silent to tragedy of humanity in Syria, and Turkey was meeting all needs of Syrian people who took shelter in its territories.      

Bekir Bozdag said Syria had not taken its promises within the scope of Annan plan, and many people continued to die in Syria.      

Moreover, Bozdag said that the best example of presidential system was the United States because presidential system was being implemented with all its characteristics in this country.
