Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras commented on the Koran readings conducted within Aghia Sophia in Istanbul, urging Turkey to set aside such provocations and “comply with treaties and international law.”

Tsipras said the incident was an attempt to use Aghia Sophia in a way that did not accord with its history and its status as a monument, noting that the Greek government’s objections found support in UNESCO and from the U.S. State Department.(Source: ANA-MPA)
