    Dear international community, Yesterday more than a million people gathered in Istanbul to support their elected government. Yesterday before day a similar gathering took place in Ankara... The exaggerated news on some of the international media who mostly show marginal groups' chaotic attempts in Istanbul to destabilize the country do not represent the realities of Turkey. The elections in Turkey are held with international standards and
    the government has won about 50% of all the votes (whereas the second biggest party got as close as 25%). The democracy in our country is mature and fully active.
