    At the first official reception hosted at Cankaya Presidential Palace by newly elected President Abdullah Gul and his wife, Hayrunnisa Gul, the President made comments directed at the leaders of the Kurdish authority in northern Iraq, noting "The US will one day leave the region." Gul went on: "It is clear who will stay in this region, who will remain as a power there. Barzani needs to make a decision."

    More than 800 people attended the Cankaya reception, with media figures, sports stars, and important figures from the Turkish business world present. One source counted a total of 33 "turbaned" or headscarved women at the reception. Gul took time to answer reporters' questions about the situation in northern Iraq, commenting:
    "Turkey is no one's enemy. We supply more help to northern Iraq than anyone. We have more relatives and close ones there than anyone. During difficult periods in the past for northern Iraq, Turkey has always opened its doors. But the terror group relations are poisoning things, they are taking our relations hostage."
