Greek Foreign Ministry: Turkey Exposed by Its Own Nationalist Delusions

ATHENS – Turkey's nationalist delusions expose it, reads a Saturday statement by the Greek Foreign Affairs Ministry, which came in response to the Turkish Foreign Affairs Ministry's statements against Greece's reaction to the first muslim prayer held Friday at Istanbul's Hagia Sophia. 

"The international community of the 21st century is astonished at the delusions of religious and nationalist fanaticism in present-day Turkey," the statement said.

Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy on Saturday had said that "Greece has, once again, shown its hostility to Islam and Turkey by justifying its reaction to the fact that the Hagia Sophia mosque was opened for prayer."

The Turkish ministry added that it strongly condemned the hostile statements made by the Greek government and members of the Greek parliament, as well as the burning of a Turkish flag during demonstrations in Thessaloniki.
