Erdogan Claims Papandreou Didn’t Keep his Word

Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Tαyyip Erdoğan accused Prime Ministr Papandreou of not keeping his word, concerning the election of mufti in western Thrace.  Referring to “anomies” of the past, he pointed out that he accepted to give the Turkish nationality to Holy Synod members, so as the election of the patriarch to be legal and according to the Treaty of Lausanne in the future. As a consequence, he asked for a similar attitude on behalf of the Greek government regarding the mufti election in western Thrace. We cannot think that Greek authorities should employ the mufti of the Turkish minority. He should be elected by the Muslim population. “They did give their word but they did not keep it”.
