In response to this comment, shouts of "Nothing came to us" began to rise from the rows of seats in the assembly. Gul responded to these shouts by saying "We sent copies to your parties, they probably were not able to get them to you."
A little while later, CHP leader Baykal rose from his seat to say "You are insisting, but I just spoke with my secretary, and there are no documents which were sent to us." Gul continued to insist that the framework document had been sent out, and Baykal continued to deny it, until finally, leaving the podium, Gul personally carried over a copy of the document to where Baykal was sitting. With the document resting in Gul's outstretched hand, Baykal refused to take it, while persisting in his denial that it had ever been sent. Gul finally put the framework document down on Baykal's desk, and walked away, turning to take the document back with him angrily when Baykal said "We don't want it, you take it." While Gul's actions met with outcry from the opposition party seats, they received applause from fellow AKP members in the parliament.
