Erdoğan evaluated the red notice about Iraqi Vice President Tarık Hashimi, who is currently in Turkey.
Erdoğan said "I believe he will go back to his country after the medical treatment. Mr. Hashimi continues his initiatives about the judicial process he is going through. We gave him our support on the issue, we will continue to do so."
Erdoğan also touched upon the elections in Syria. Erdoğan said "If you ask me about my hopes, I am on the brink of losing it. Unfortunately, the road map is not working as intended. As a country that believes in the parliamentarian system, we cannot believe in the Syrian elections. Even parties could not run in the elections."
When asked about a headline in an Italian newspaper, Erdoğan refuted having said that he was ready to ask for help from NATO for military intervention against Syria, and said "If you read the whole interview you will see that there is no such statement. The headline belongs to the journalist who interviewed me." Prime Minister Erdoğan corrected his words as follows: "If there is an action against Turkey, NATO will intervene, this is not the situation now, we can't speak before it happens."
