We are stranger to the programme which is called "7 Days in the World." French political scientist Philippe Moreau Defarges,who participated in a program in the economy channel BFM Business, said: "Erdoğan will lock all the possible ways. Therefore the only solution is a civil war or it's hard to say but it's his assasination.". They want democracy, but they kill people. They say: "There is war.", and they kill people. They say: "There is terror.", and they kill people. They say: "We want to peace."; and nevertheless they kill people. State of states where they killed their leaders are obvious. (Iraq, Syria, Libya, Pakistan etc.) They do not want anything but chaos in the world. While dozens of terrorist acts in the heart of France, they still hoped benefit of the terror, blood and chaos, also they who begged to Erdogan yesterday: "Please host immigrants.", were not they? Does not come to mind that if a public survey is made, Europe's most insecure country is France? As Turkey, for a Europe free of terrorism, we say Erdogan. We do not understand these French.

Nous sommes étrangers au programme intitulé «7 jours dans le monde». Le politologue français Philippe Moreau Defarges, qui a participé à un programme sur la chaîne économique, a déclaré: "Erdogan verrouillera toutes les manières possibles. C'est une guerre civile ou c'est difficile à dire, mais c'est son assassinat". Ils veulent la démocratie, mais ils tuent des gens. Ils disent: "Il y a de la guerre". Et ils tuent des gens. Ils disent: "Il y a de la terreur". Et ils tuent des gens. Ils disent: "Nous voulons la paix". Et pourtant ils tuent des gens. État des États. (Irak, Syrie, Libye, Pakistan, etc.) Ils ne veulent rien d'autre que le chaos dans le monde. Alors qu'ils n'étaient pas là, ils ne voulaient pas payer pour cela, et ils ne voulaient pas payer pour cela. Ne me rappelle-t-il pas que si un sondage public est réalisé, le pays le plus insécurité de l'Europe est la France? En Turquie, pour une Europe du terrorisme libre, on dit Erdogan. Nous ne comprenons pas ce français.

“Dünyada 7 Gün” adlı programa Fransız kaldık!
Fransız siyaset bilimci Philippe Moreau Defarges, ekonomi kanalı BFM Business'de katıldığı programda, Defarges, "O zaman geriye ya iç savaş ya da bunu söylemek zor ama onun (Erdoğan’ın) öldürülmesi kalıyor" dedi. Bunlar: “Demokrasi istiyoruz.” derler, öldürürler. Bunlar: “Savaş var.” derler, öldürürler. Bunlar: “Terör var.“ derler ,öldürürler. Bunlar: “Barış istiyoruz.” derler, yine öldürürler. Liderlerini öldürttükleri devletlerin hali ortada .( Irak, Suriye, Libya, Pakistan, vs) Bunlar dünyada kaostan başka bir şey istemezler. Fransa’nın göbeğinde onca terör olayı olurken hala terörden, kandan ,kaos dan çıkar umanlar, dün Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’a “Aman göçmenleri misafir edin.” diye yalvaranlar değil midir? Bir kamuoyu araştırması yapılsa Avrupa’nın en güvensiz ülkesinin Fransa olduğu, akıllarına gelmez mi acaba? Terörden arındırılmış bir Avrupa için Türkiye olarak Erdoğan diyoruz. Biz bu Fransızlara Fransız kaldık.

Turkey is acting in accordance with international human rights conventions in its measures against the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ), Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told European parliamentarians Wednesday. Speaking at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) during its autumn plenary session in the French city of Strasbourg on Wednesday, Çavuşoğlu said: “To clear elements of Fetullah Terrorist Organization from where they infiltrated, notably in public institutions, we should do whatever is needed.

“We are acting in accordance with the principles of a law-abiding state. We act in accordance with European Convention on Human Rights and international responsibilities.” Later, in remarks made to the media following his meeting with PACE President Pedro Agramunt, he said Turkey would consider the Council of Europe's recommendations. About the extension in Turkey's state of emergency, he said: “We had to prolong the state of emergency since the situation was too complicated. We have to make sure such a coup attempt never happens again.

“We continue to cooperate with the Council of Europe during the process. We are informing them about our legislative regulations. The process [of taking action against FETÖ] runs [in accordance] with the Council of Europe [standards] and basic values,” he added. “The state of emergency will be lifted once the situation has normalized,” he said.

Over 240 people were martyred and around 2,200 others injured when a section of the armed forces tried to overthrow the government. Turkey has accused FETÖ, led by U.S.-based Fetullah Gülen, of organizing a long-running campaign to topple the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary. Earlier on Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said 3,456 FETÖ-linked judges, prosecutors and top jurists had been dismissed so far following the bid, while 198 judges and prosecutors were reinstated.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Wednesday criticized U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's remarks on arming Syrian Kurds as “unfortunate."
"Clinton said, 'We will continue to support the PYD and YPG.' This is a very unfortunate statement," Erdoğan said at a ceremony for appointing judges and prosecutors in Ankara. When asked Sunday how she would handle Syria if elected president, Clinton said she “would also consider arming the Kurds." While she did not mention the PYD – the Syrian offshoot of the PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU – or its armed wing, the YPG, her remarks have been interpreted in Ankara as referring to the terrorist group.

The PKK has fought a three-decade war against Turkey in which more than 40,000 people have died. Turkey has repeatedly said that arming the PKK/PYD is a source of concern, as the terrorist group poses a threat to Turkey. "This should not be done," said Erdoğan. “Because the sensibilities of the region are different. Such a step cannot be taken in a period when there are these sensibilities."

He attributed Clinton's remarks to "political inexperience." Erdoğan also reiterated that Turkey will not allow the formation of a "terror corridor" in northern Syria. On the state purges of Fethullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ)-linked members in the wake of the July 15 defeated coup, Erdogan said a total of 3,456 FETÖ-linked judges, prosecutors, and top jurists have been dismissed so far, while 198 judges and prosecutors have been reinstated.

Turkey accuses FETÖ, which is led by U.S.-based Fetullah Gülen, of organizing the defeated coup as well as a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary. The July 15 coup attempt left 241 people martyred and some 2,200 injured.

Two PKK terrorists accused of plotting suicide attacks were detained by Turkey's gendarme Wednesday in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir, the governor's office said. The two terrorists received target practice and equipment, and nine pistol cartridges were found at their home by the gendarme, said a statement by the governor's office. Numerous arrests have been carried out across Turkey since a July 2015 suicide bombing which killed 33 people and injured hundreds in the Suruc district of the Sanliurfa province near the Syrian border.

The PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU – resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015. Since then, PKK terrorist attacks have martyred more than 600 security personnel and also claimed the lives of numerous civilians, including women and children, while more than 7,000 PKK terrorists have been killed in army operations.

More people in the world are obese than underweight, with child and adolescent obesity rising rapidly, particularly in developing nations, the United Nations said ahead of the second annual World Obesity Day on Tuesday.

Here are some facts about obesity:

- Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980.

- In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight. Of these over 600 million, or 13 percent of the global population, were obese.

- 3.4 million people die each year due to overweight and obesity.

- Obesity is on the rise in urban areas in low- and middle-income countries.

- Most of the world's population lives in countries where problems of being overweight or obese kill more people than problems associated with being underweight.

- 41 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2014.

- Nearly half of the children under 5 who were overweight or obese in 2014 lived in Asia.

- In Africa, the number of children who are overweight or obese nearly doubled to 10.6 million in 2014 from 5.4 million in 1990.

- Obese children experience breathing difficulties, increased risk of fractures, hypertension, early markers of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and psychological effects.

- In Europe, Britain has the highest level of obesity in Western Europe, ahead of countries such as France, Germany, Spain and Sweden, according to a 2013 report.

- Obesity levels in Britain have more than trebled in the last 30 years and, on current estimates, more than half the population could be obese by 2050.

Predominantly Buddhist Thailand will allow abortion in cases with fetuses with proven birth defects linked to the Zika virus, health officials said on Thursday, in keeping with existing guidelines. Thailand last week confirmed its first known cases of microcephaly linked to the mosquito-borne virus. The two cases of the birth defect marked by a small head were the first in Southeast Asia, following Zika outbreaks in the Americas.

Health experts who met this week to draft guidelines for expectant mothers with Zika concluded that abortions can be carried out at up to 24 weeks in case of serious birth defects. "The difficulty with Zika is to determine microcephaly. It is usually found later in pregnancy," Pisek Lumpikanon, president of the Royal Thai College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

"Legal medical abortions can be done up to 24 weeks," he added. "The reason is that at 24 weeks and after the baby already has a good chance of survival."

Abortion is illegal in Thailand, except in cases of rape or to save a woman's life or preserve her health, and if carried out in up to 12 weeks of pregnancy. Beyond that time, hospitals must decide on a case-by-case basis and can carry out medical abortions at up to 24 weeks, Pisek said.

"This is what can currently be done in Thailand in cases of Down syndrome, for example," he said.

There are no specific tests to determine if a baby will be born with microcephaly but ultrasound scans can identify it in the third trimester of pregnancy, the World Health Organisation (WHO) says. Thailand has said it is considering testing all pregnant women for Zika. Inadequate screening by health authorities across Southeast Asia is likely to lead to significant under-reporting of the spread of Zika, regional experts say.

Thailand has confirmed 392 cases of Zika since January, with 39 pregnant women among them, while the wealthy city-state of Singapore has recorded 393 cases, including 16 pregnant women. Despite its laissez-faire reputation among travellers, Thailand remains largely conservative, and Theravada Buddhism, the form of the religion practised by up to 95 percent of its people, regards abortion as a sin. That might lead some doctors to decline to terminate pregnancies, Pisek said, adding, "Buddhism won't affect the law, but some doctors might refuse."
