Nothing to worry about PM’s health
“The prime minister’s state of health is very well. There is nothing to worry about,” Akdağ said at a conference in Ankara Dec. 8.
“He wanted to go back to work earlier, but we advised him to continue resting,” the minister said, and it would be up to Erdoğan and his office to announce when he would return to work.
Erdoğan has been recovering at his Istanbul home since the Nov. 26 operation on his digestive system.
The International Investors Association of Turkey (YASED) announced in a press release yesterday that Erdoğan would deliver a speech at their annual reception Dec. 15. However, the prime minister’s press office would not confirm Erdoğan’s attendance of the event, saying that his program for that day had not yet been fixed.
