The deep pain we feel for the tens of thousands of our compatriots who lost their lives in the earthquake catastrophe in Turkey still hurts us. In fact, I went to the earthquake zone several times during Ramadan, and I even had my first iftar in Hatay with the earthquake victims. I saw their faith and resilience up close.

The Greek people and their government have shown in the best and most sincere way how close they are to the Turkish people in recent months. We hope that this sincere expression of friendship will have a positive impact on advancing the rights of our relatives in the near future.
