Turkish President, Abdullah Gül, said in an interview with the Guardian the conflict in Georgia had showed the United States could no longer shape global politics on its own and should begin sharing power with other countries.
“I don't think you can control all the world from one centre,” he told the Guardian. “There are big nations. There are huge populations. There is unbelievable economic development in some parts of the world. So what we have to do is, instead of unilateral actions, act all together, make common decisions and have consultations with the world. A new world order, if I can say it, should emerge.”
