In response to a question about the possible concerns of the West because his party is Islamist , Ben Kiran said , “No need to fear, at the Justice and Development Party there is no room ever for surprises. We will strengthen relations with the West.”
“We do not need to reassure the West which is already assured. No worries.” He added
