Turkey’s Gul urges judiciary to stay impartial in graft investigation

Turkish President Abdullah Gul addresses the 68th United Nations General Assembly in New YorkBy Nick Tattersall ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Turkish President Abdullah Gul urged the judiciary to remain impartial as it pursues a corruption investigation shaking the government, warning on Friday of grave economic consequences if confidence in the country's institutions is eroded. In his most exhaustive comments on the graft scandal so far, Gul said the existence of a "state within the state" would not be tolerated, an apparent reference to the movement of U.S.-based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, whose followers are influential in Turkey's police and judiciary. The corruption investigation, which has led to the resignation of three ministers, poses the biggest challenge to Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan in his 11 years as leader.


Palestinian protesters greet Kerry’s visit

Palestinian protesters on Friday condemned the latest efforts by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to advance peace talks with Israel, using chants evoking the Arab uprisings and telling him to go home. Hours before Kerry was due to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a raucous crowd of several hundred took to the streets of Ramallah, the West Bank’s de facto capital, chanting “Kerry, you coward, there’s no place for you in Palestine!” Separately, an official close to Abbas dismissed Kerry’s drive for a “framework agreement” as biased toward Israel. But Yasser Abed Rabbo, Abbas’s deputy in the Palestine Liberation Organisation, said the plan, still being finalized, “restricts Palestinian sovereignty on Palestinian land”.
