Gul: "Our problems should be solved through democracy and the rule of law"

President Abdullah Gul yesterday traveled to Croatia for a three-day visit at the invitation of his Croatian counterpart Stepan Mesic. Before leaving, Gul held a press conference at Ankara's Esenboga Airport. Asked about last week's Constitutional Court ruling upholding the headscarf ban at universities, Gul said that Turkey's problems should be solved through universal principles of democracy, the rule of law, and the Constitution's guidance. "In approaching issues such as the fight against terrorism, and economic and other global problems, Turkey and its institutions should be strong and also maintain their dignity," he added.
