Greece only has one minority, and it is the Muslim minority, Greek diplomatic sources said on Tuesday in response to comments by Turkish Foreign Minister Melvut Cavusoglu.
They also made a point of reminding Turkey of the Lausanne Treaty.
“In Greece, which is a historic cradle of democracy and a modern European country, living under conditions of total equality before the law and equal political rights is the only minority, the Muslim one,” sources said, adding that “it takes a plain reading of the Lausanne Treaty to understand this.”
