CAIRO - Turkey's President Abdullah Gul said on Thursday Egypt's military rulers should allow a quick and transparent transition to meet the demands for democracy from the Egyptian people.

"The transition process is the best way to meet the expectations of the people," Gul told a group of journalists aboard his plane before arriving in Cairo, where he was expected to hold talks with military leaders and political groups.

"The transition must be transparent and open and must be satisfactory. If the transition period does not meet the expectations of the people it won't be successful," Gul said.

"This should not take too long a time."
