Muslim Pilgrims Allowed to Visit Hala Sultan Tekke Irrelevant of their Status, FM Kasoulides Says

The government addresses the pilgrimage to Hala Sultan Tekke in Larnaca as a pilgrimage of Muslims, irrelevant of their status, legal or illegal in Cyprus` occupied areas, as it always did, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said on Tuesday.
He also said the government deplores the fact that the Turkish Cypriot illegal regime prohibited earlier this month Greek Cypriot pilgrims visit to Saint Mamas church and will denounce this at the UN because this constitutes a limitation of religious freedom.
The pilgrimage to Hala Sultan Tekke took place on Tuesday to celebrate the Muslim feast of Eid Al Adha or Kurban Bayram.
