 Erdogan: intelligence must answer to government

Senior intelligence must answer to the head of the government, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, speaking on state-run broadcaster TRT Haber news channel, 

"Senior intelligence must answer to the head of the government so that it doesn’t lose its mobility," Erdogan said, asked about recent changes to the running of Turkey’s National Intelligence Coordination Board.

"Thus, we gather intelligence and take our steps accordingly,” Anadolu Agency cited Erdogan as saying.

Turkey’s official gazette announced on Friday that the president would head the National Intelligence Coordination Board, which oversees the intelligence activities of MIT, the military and police.
