AK Party Vice Chairman Mr. Egemen Bagis said "We will go on solving the problems of our country as we did before".
Mr. Egemen Bagis was the guest of Mr. Mehmet Soysal, TGRT News TV Chief Editor's ‘Basbasa' program on the 11th of April 2008 where he said "Nobody should have concerns on loss of stability and peace, there is a government that knows what it is doing. We will go with our efforts unifying our country."
PROGRESS WITH NEGOTIATIONSAbout the closure case of AK Party Mr. Bagis said "We have experienced such things in the history too. But now Turkey is a country that has started accession negotiations with EU, a country that made a Turk to be selected as the Chairman of the Islamic Conference Organization.
Bagis said "Today because of the process Turkey is passing through, we can see who is for EU and who is against EU, who is for democracy and who is against democracy."
Bagis continued "EU is Turkey's dietician. Any country that adjusted itself to this diet got rid of its coarseness. We will end the negotiations and then ask our citizens whether to enter or not. Nothing we do is secret. We don't and we won't have a secret agenda."
"WE GOT STRONGER AFTER THE ELECTIONS" Bagis said "We love our citizens and they know it. They make us more powerful in each election we go through."
Bagis also clearly answered Mehmet Soysal's question about the claims that he is a citizen of USA. Bagis stressed "I am not a US citizen. Dual citizenship is an entitlement that our judicial system allows our citizens. There is nothing here that I should hide. If was a citizen of USA, I would say it. On the elections of 3rd November 2002 I got a very honorable offer from our Prime Minister and I came back to my country. Now I am serving my country as a politician."
