"There is social responsibility cheaper meats average monthly 5-6 thousand tons given in sense, but meat consumption over 100 thousand tons in Turkey. Every kind, every quality red meat to our citizens in the price are in demand and will continue to buy it. We're doing some imports in this regard, we have to do. We're increasing our presence in sheep and cattle. Sheep came 45 million to 30 million. Cattle our presence came to 16 million from 9 million. Actually, we have growth is in offshore 60 per cent in production. We have got to remember. Turkey's matter a great success. So, we are importing cause this success. There is a very simple reason. Turkey per person in 2002 would consume meat 6 kilograms now started to eat meat, 15 kilos. Turkey has increased welfare. CHP deputies should not resort to such work. In 2002, this nation has no meat to eat, today it eats 15 liras red meat. "

I do not see a situation for import meat next 4-5 months. The next plenty Turkey's stocks for 4-5 months enough. Turkey concerned imported meat for 4-5 months. It seems that there is no problem, we will evaluate this again after the New Year."
