European Commission Spokesperson: Hagia Sophia Is a Symbol of Tolerance, Dialogue

ATHENS — European Commission Chief Spokesperson Eric Mamer on Monday underlined that the Hagia Sophia Byzantine cathedral in Istanbul is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in reference to its potential re-conversion to a mosque from its current museum status, pending a decision by a Turkish court.

Therefore "we need to look at it from this perspective," he added and stressed that "Hagia Sophia is a symbol of tolerance, dialogue and we must not fuel any disagreement between religions."


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Sunday issued a "bumper edition" of his weekly Facebook post reviewing the work done by the government, with additional content for the entire fortnight after missing a week for the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF).
