Minority communities issued a joint statement: We are living freely in Turkey.

The statement said: “As the religious representatives and foundation managers of ancient societies belonging to different religions and faiths established in our country for centuries, we live our faith freely and carry out our worship freely according to our traditions. The statements claiming and / or implying pressure are completely unfounded and exceed their purpose. Many problems and grievances experienced in the past have been solved over time. On the other hand, we continuously consult with the institutions of our state with the mutual goodwill and the will to resolve issues that we wish to improve. We make this joint statement with the responsibility and awareness of informing the public in the right direction.”
