The Greek Foreign Ministry on Thursday called on Turkish authorities to protect Christian places of worship in the Muslim state, citing reports of “provocative elements” entering churches in Istanbul.

“In view of the Easter holidays, we expect the Turkish authorities to honor their relevant commitments and take all necessary measures to protect the Christian churches and ensure that the faithful can participate unhindered in the religious events of these days,” the ministry’s announcement said.
