Turkish PM Erdoğan makes mysterious visits across Istanbul
DHA PhotoPrime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan spent a day reconnecting with some historical spots across the Bosphorus.
After leaving his house yesterday morning, the prime minister paid a visit to the Beykoz pavilion, located on the Anatolian side of the Bosphorus, despite being expected to go to his Prime Ministry office at Dolmabahçe Palace.
The prime minister, accompanied by Parliamentary Speaker Cemil Çiçek and Chief Advisor Yalçın Akdoğan, stayed for one-and-a-half-hours at the pavilion, which recently opened its door after renovation.
Reporters, whose way was blocked by the security forces while Erdoğan was going to Beykoz, faced a surprise when the prime minister’s car left empty.
After a short while, they learned that Erdoğan used the seaway to go to his Dolmabahçe office.
Çiçek and Erdoğan got into an official car waiting for them at Beşiktaş and then toured the Yıldız Şale Mansion, the Yıldız porcelain factory and Yıldız Palace.
