    The seventh of the Abant Platform meetings was launched in Washington. The conference is co-sponsored by the Writers and Journalists Foundation and the John Hopkins University. This is the first meeting abroad, of the Platform meetings which were held in lake resort Abant until now.

    Making the inauguration address of the conference as the host, academician Francis Fukuyama said that a society's being religious does not conflict with democracy and secularism and ; U.S. is one of the  most religious societies in the West but this does not prevent the administration from  being laic and democratic.

    Fukuyama said that the AKP ruling in Turkey has shown that being both Moslem and democratic was possible and Turkey could be a model to the Islam world with these characteristics. State Minister Mehmet Aydin who used to  chair the Abant meetings in the past, also joined the two-day conference. Parliament Speaker Bulent Arinc
    and Greek Patriarch Barhtolomeos sent messages to the Aban Platform meeting.
