After suffering from a cold, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was taken to Ankara Atatürk Research and Training Hospital for few hours on Tuesday where he went through medical examination.
A parliamentary group meeting of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) was cancelled on Tuesday morning due to Prime Erdoğan's health.
He told reporters that he would continue his program at the weekend. I have a fatigue due to influenza, said Erdogan, adding that he postponed his programs as well as Tuesday's Justice & Development (AK) Party group meeting. "Thank God now I'm feeling better, and I'm getting well but I'm going to rest at home for a few days," said Erdoğan.
When reporters asked whether his visit at the hospital was related with his previous illness, Erdoğan replied his current condition was not related with it.
After remaining in hospital for a few hours on Tuesday, Erdoğan spoke to press outside the hospital and said that he has been advised to rest at home for a week to recover. Health Minister Dr. Mehmet Müezzinoğlu visited the prime minister shortly after he was hospitalized.
On February 11, 2012, Erdoğan underwent the second and last phase of a digestion system surgery, the first of which was made on November 26, 2011.
Erdoğan underwent a laparoscopic surgery in his digestive system on November 26, 2011, and was discharged from hospital on November 29.
In a similar development on Monday, pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) leader Selahattin Demirtaş was hospitalized after suffering from chest pain in Diyarbakır. He is now reportedly in good condition.Last Mod: 12 Mart 2013, 15:21
