ANKARA, June 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Turkey is a state governed by the rule of law, and it is indispensable that the protesters leave the occupied by them Gezi Park in Istanbul's Taksim Square as soon as possible, according to a statement made by the official spokesperson of the ruling Justice and Development Party Huseyn Celik today in Turkey's capital.
Resuming the strained 4-hour meeting of Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan with the deleagtion of protesters in Gezi park, that ended today morning, Celik said that, as he presumes, 'it will not be allowed to occupy the park anymore'.
From his words, the authorities support the idea of running a public opinion poll in Istanbul on the future of Gezi. 'The park remains a park and before the polling it cannot be anything else. It is essential for it to stop being a place illegally occupied by a certain group of people', Celik stressed, adding that the same opinion share a number of cultural figures that also have taken part in today's meeting with the prime minister.
During the meeting that was held in the residence of Turkey's head of government the police had to break up a group of agressive demonstrators of up to 200 people that gathered near the building.
The inhabitants of Ankara are anxiously waiting for further development of the situation around Gezi park. As reported, a part of protesters encamped in the park have rejected the ultimatum delivered by the prime minister on Thursday demanding to leave this territory in 24 hours. Meanwhile, the oppositioners are ready to analise the summary of the meeting with Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
