Güler Sabancı Comments on the “Peace Process”

11.02.2013
  • “TURKEY WANTS A DEMOCRATIC, EQUALITARIAN, LIBERTARIAN NEW CONSTITUTION. TURKEY AIMS FOR PEACE AND SOLIDARITY”.
  • TURKEY HAS A PRIME MINISTER WHO HAS THE BACKING OF THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION. AND HE IS VERY RESOLUTE. THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR COUNTRY.

There are still child brides in our country. This is a matter of human rights, development, and social change. When we take that perspective we see that there is a regional development inequality. There are regional differences with respect to the child brides issue. In that sense I very am hopeful for solution of the Kurdish issue, and for the peace and solidarity process which we entered under the leadership of the esteemed prime minister. I believe that this process must be supported.

I believe that the process Turkey is going through now is a great opportunity. Development of individuals underlies the development of the society. This can be achieved through a democratic, equalitarian, libertarian new Constitution. Moreover, there is a process for which is our Prime Minister paved the way. We must support everyone who makes an effort in this process. I am really full of hope. There is a considerable social support for these two issues. Turkey wants a new constitution. Turkey wants the peace process. Turkey wants the peace and solidarity process. Turkey’s Prime Minister has the backing of the majorıty of the population. And he is very resolute in this matter. When we add all of these together, I believe that we have a great opportunity ahead of us. I believe that if Turkey succeeds in realizing the peace and solidarity process, its economy will soar. It will grow much faster and the problem of economic development differences between regions will be eliminated, which will positively affect participation in business life, education, and women’s and girls’ human rights, and everything in those regions.
