    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 2): REPORTER: "IN TURKEY A NEW GOVERNMENT IS BEING FORMED, MAINLY OF EXPERTS AND CIVIL SERVANTS IT WOULD SEEM AT FIRST GLANCE. NOW WITH THIS CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT, MAY ONE ALSO EXPECT A CHANGE IN YOUR COUNTRY'S FOREIGN POLICY?"



    OSMAN OLCAY:" I'LL BEGIN BY SAYING TO YOU THAT YOU SEEM BETTER INFORMED THAN I AM. BECAUSE AT THIS VERY MOMENT I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE COMPOSITION OF THE GOVERNMENT IS. I KEEP SEEING NAMES IN VARIOUS PAPERS, I HEAR IT IN NEWS BULLETINS, BUT I HAVEN'T YET SEEN A LIST WHICH HAS BEEN CONFIRMED TO ME AS THE OFFICIAL ONE. I DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT MY NAME IS IN THE OFFICIAL LIST, AND IF SUCH A LIST EXISTS AT THE TIME I AM TALKING TO YOU. BUT HAVING SAID THIS, I HAVE NOTICED THAT THERE IS FAIR NUMBER OF TECHNICIANS AND NON-POLITICIANS. BUT I AM SURE THAT THERE WILL BE NO CHANGE IN THE FOREIGN POLICY OF MY COUNTRY. FIRST OF ALL, BECAUSE DESIGNATE... THE PRIME MINISTER DESIGNATED, OFFICER ERIM, HAS SAID THAT THE RE WILL BE NO CHANGES. IF THE PRIME MINISTER SAYS IT AS ONE OF THE FIRST STATEMENTS THIS IS PROOF ENOUGH THAT HE DOESN'T INTEND TO MAKE SUCH A CHANGE. AND THE CHOICE HE'S MADE OF VARIOUS MEMBERS, OF THE NAMES I KNOW AT LEAST, CONFIRM THIS FEELING I HAVE THAT THERE WILL BE NO CHANGE. AND THERE I NO NEED FOR CHANGE IN THE TURKISH FOREIGN POLICY."
