  • [01] Gov't slams demonstration against Patriarch in Izmir

    Government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos on Tuesday slammed a demonstration that took place in Izmir the day before in protest against the Ecumenical Patriarchate's presence in Turkey, describing it as "unacceptable, at best".

    He said that such events "do not characterise a country with a desire to have European prospects", while adding that the incidents "cannot reflect the entire country".

    "I hope that these are isolated incidents that will be condemned by the appropriate Turkish authorities," Roussopoulos stressed.

    In an announcement on Monday, the Turkish nationalist group Milli Guc said that it has collected 2 million signatures petitioning for the relocation of the Ecumenical Patriarchate headquartered in Istanbul.

    Dozens participated in the demonstration staged by the group in Izmir, in which an effigy of the Patriarch was placed in a boat and pushed offshore.
