PASOK: Conversion of Monastery of Chora into a mosque bears Erdogan's signature

"The operation of the Monastery of Chora, a world cultural heritage monument with Byzantine mosaics unique in the world, as a mosque is a very serious challenge that bears the signature of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan" opposition party PASOK-Movement for Change said in an announcement on Tuesday.

It also noted that the consequences of converting Hagia Sophia into a mosque are obvious, with experts sounding the alarm bell for this unique monument.

"The Greek government, although it knew from August 2020 about the decision of the Turkish President, did nothing to prevent it, as a result of which the inauguration was set a week before the visit of the Greek Prime Minister (Kyriakos Mitsotakis) to Ankara" the party said.

"Once again it is proven, unfortunately, that the Greek-Turkish dialogue lacks a basis of sincere consensus, while the Greek government seems to be more interested in creating political impressions than in actually defending national interests."
