Ahmetoğlu shared the following statements on his social media accounts:
“One of the results of the devastating earthquakes that took place in our motherland Türkiye, which shattered our hearts, was the softening in relations between Türkiye and Greece and the rapprochement between the two countries. Undoubtedly, we are the Turks of Western Thrace, who are most pleased with this.
It is our greatest hope that this rapprochement between Türkiye and Greece will go beyond the emotionality caused by the pain and that the political will that will enable the solution of the problems between the two countries in line with mutual interests will be revealed.
It is the demand and expectation of us, Western Thrace Turks, that this environment is instrumental in taking steps to eliminate the problems of the Western Thrace Turkish Minority that have been waiting for a solution for years and the usurpation of rights against the Turkish community...”
