Greek PM: Coexistence of Christians and Muslims Always Productive

periodeia-to-thumb-largeThe coexistence of Christians and Muslims in Thrace has been and will “always remain productive,” Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in Komotini on Friday.
The Greek PM was addressing the Music High School – Lyceum of Komotini, which he visited along with Education Minister Costas Gavroglou as part of his northern Greece tour. Komotini and Xanthi in Thrace have a substantial number of Greek Muslim residents.
“In this school, you, Christians and Muslims, bring a message of optimism, that our coexistence has been and will always remain productive. Culture, along with education, are our biggest weapons and they will forge our identity so that we can respond to new challenges, the challenges of the new era,” Tsipras said, addressing the students.
Tsipras called the school an “example of coexistence and that the element of culture grafts our communities, small and large, because culture is manners, customs, culture and soul. It is no coincidence that our common cultural tradition form a very substantial, very great message for the future. This is our place, and this is our identity; interwoven with contributions from all sides, from all religions, in all respects.”
