    Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, speaking at a press conference prior to his departure for Pakistan, responded to a reporter's question about the urgent Rectors Meeting called by the Board of Higher Education (YOK) in reaction to the recent arrest of Van University's rector Professor Askin. Said Erdogan, "As you know, the earthquake in Pakistan is on our agenda right now. However, I do think it would be much more helpful for our country if everyone knew what their position and responsibilities required of them."

    Our help will continue

    PM Erdogan repeated the assertion that Turkey will continue sending aid to Pakistan, reminding press members that already Turkey has sent 12 full planes of aid to that country. Erdogan said that he would be meeting with Pakistan's State President Pervez Mushareff, Pakistani PM Shevket Aziz, and Pakistand FM Murshit Kasuri.
