    Greece's Minister of National Defense Akis Tsochatzopoulos stated that the decision of Turkey's Supreme Court to outlaw the Islamic Welfare Party is proof that this country has a long way to go until it becomes a democratic institution.

    Welfare Party leader and former prime minister Necmetin Erbakan and other 5 party members lost their seats in Turkey's National Assembly. Mr. Erbakan stated that he intends to seek recourse through the European Commission for Human Rights.

    The decision hurts the faith to the democratic principles, commented Washington.
