ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's government will abide by a constitutional court ruling rejecting party of a law tightening government control of the judiciary, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said on Friday.

"The regulation we have prepared is a regulation that conforms with the constitution. The constitutional court's cancellation decision has not changed my opinion. But of course we will abide by the court's decision," Bozdag told reporters.
