Lagendijk: "Turkey needs its own Obama"
Turkey needs a leader like Barack Obama in order to fulfill its necessary domestic reforms, said Turkey-EU Joint Parliamentary Committee Co-Chair Joost Lagendijk yesterday. In a statement to news website ABHaber, Lagendijk said, "Society and policy in Turkey are divided over Turkey's future. At the same time, Turkey should get rid of outmoded structures in the judiciary and army. Turkey needs someone to rally people from all walks of life to support reforms to make Turkey a more democratic country."
