Friday, 8 April 2016
In the first episode of 4, former Turkish President Abdullah Gul speaks about the hard efforts, he and the former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein have deployed to prevent the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. However these efforts did not bare fruits. Former Turkish President talks also about his relationship with the current President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and denies what was said about the contention between the two of them but only different point of views.
