Erdogan Is in Good Health After Second Operation, Haberturk Says

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is in good health after undergoing surgery in Istanbul, Haberturk reported, without saying how it got the information.

The surgery yesterday at the Medipol Hospital was a follow- up procedure to a Nov. 26 stomach operation to remove polyps, the newspaper reported on its website. An official at the prime minister’s press office in Ankara declined to confirm the report when contacted by telephone.

Erdogan said in an interview on Jan. 19 with broadcaster Kanal D that he doesn’t have cancer.
