FM Dendias Briefs EPP on Turkish Court’s Hagia Sophia Decision

ATHENS — Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias briefed fellow ministers in the European People's Party (EPP) group on Friday of a Turkish court's decision allowing the change of the iconic Byzantine church of Hagia Sophia from a museum into a mosque.

In a tweet, the minister said that the court decision announced by the Turkish president is a challenge to the global cultural heritage and to UNESCO, which has recognized the monument as such.

Dendias was attending a teleconference of EPP meeting ahead of the EU's Council of Foreign Ministers on Monday.
