Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggested Tuesday that Ariel Sharon's Kadima party would be able carry on with the Israeli leader's work should he not be able to return to politics.
"There are hospital statements which say that he may no longer be able to continue with politics... It would not be right for us ... to comment on that."
"But there is an established party there and the party has a deputy head. There is Shimon Peres. And they are preparing the party for elections," Erdogan said during a joint press conference with his Japanese counterpart Junichiro Koizumi.
